Noun(1) any of a family of brass wind instruments that resemble a bugle with valves
(1) Adolphe Sax knew of this instrument when developing the E bass of his saxhorn family of 1845, from which the British tuba ultimately derives.(2) Though he did not see fit to employ saxophones in his own works - leaving them to be exploited by such later composers as Bizet, d' Indy and Ravel - the saxhorn family (derived from the valved bugle) features prominently in Les Troyens.
