Important Note: Tenor Bell Rings have been resized for better tone and response.

After a long testing phase of new tenor bell ring sizes aided by the input of many established tenor players, these new sizes offer the same intonation benefits while offering improved response and tone compared to the previous sizes. The new sizes also allow for a greater range of options to fit more players’ needs.

We are so confident that these new sizes perform better for most players that we have decided to completely redesignate tenor bell ring sizes.

In our testing, the new sizes O and II were the most popular. We consider size O the safest option, particularly if a player is worried about a bell ring impacting their tone or low register response too much. Size II was especially popular among classical saxophonists, as it provides a pleasantly dark-sounding low B-flat without adversely affecting response in the low register.

Please refer to the conversion chart below to see how the new sizes compare to the old sizes. The main difference with the new tenor bell rings is that we have decided to make the “standard” sizes thinner. We have decided to make many of the old sizes still available under a different roman numeral designation with a “+” signifying a thicker ring, for those who may still want to have access to those.
