What were the first instruments ever made?
its the one and only drums or a percussion instrument.
Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone in the 1840's. He was looking to create an instrument with the power of brass instruments, but with the musical facility of the reed instruments. His first instruments were made of brass, just like the ophecleide (a bass cup-mouthpiece instrument which he also made.) So in essence, the modern saxophone is made of the same material that the first ones were made from.
