Who We Are
Schmitt Music has been a trusted partner to musicians in the upper Midwest since 1896, and with the launch of The Sax Shop in 2010, we’ve became a resource for the saxophone community, connecting professionals and beginners alike with the world’s best instruments, mouthpieces and more.
We strive to provide all players with the resources they need to perfect their sound. As professional saxophonists, educators, and technicians, we understand selecting an instrument is a very personal decision that takes careful consideration. Our specialist is here to make choosing your next saxophone an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
From beginner to pro, the Schmitt Music Sax Shop strives to provide an unparalleled customer experience.
In addition to the manufacturer’s warranty, we also provide our own guarantee for each instrument. When you purchase from The Sax Shop, your confidence rests not only on the promise of your particular saxophone maker, but also on our ironclad guarantee – proven and backed by 120 years of customer care. In addition, our saxophone specialists are deeply committed to working with you to assure 100% satisfaction with your saxophone and our company. We pride ourselves on being able to answer all of your questions about saxophones, repairs, maintenance, etc. – contact us with your question; we’ll always do our best to answer it!
Pictures and lists of product specs help in choosing an instrument, but selecting a saxophone is a personal experience that requires time with the instruments. We make it easy to play saxophones before you make a decision, offering in-store and out-of-store trials.
The Sax Shop carries fine instruments for the discerning player. Professionals, dedicated amateurs, educators and students will all be delighted to select from our wide spectrum of handmade, professional-level and intermediate saxophones, mouthpieces, and more!
