comment Making a Soundproof Room
While there is such a thing as a "practice mute" for saxophone, it is in essence a case in which to put the saxophone to muffle the sound while playing. I've never seen one in person, but I cannot imagine the device working satisfactorily. Because woodwinds produce sound through their tone holes, brass-style bell-insertion mutes do not work for woodwind instruments.

I wouldn't close, and I don't think this is a duplicate question (as far as I can tell). The "Edit," however, seems like a separate question that could be made more specific and answerable.
