Re: [Harp-L] Sax and Harmonica

..but when a C melody sax plays the fingering for 'C', it IS C. Seems like the C melody is the 'mother' instrument of the family, in 
terms of the nomenclature for naming of fingering 'positions' and yet it is the least heard instrument in the sax family .

Correct. And likewise, when an Eb sax (alto or bari) plays a C it sounds
like an Eb. The Eb (or Bb on a tenor) is frequently called the "concert
pitch." Most clarinets are Bb instruments, as well.
