This paper presents how the bifurcation diagram of a saxophone model is affected by the contact force limiting the displacement of the reed when it strikes the mouthpiece lay. The reed impact is modeled by a nonlinear stiffness and damping activated by contact with the lay. The impact model is compared with the "ghost reed" simplification, where the reed moves through the lay unimpeded. Bifurcation diagrams in both cases are compared, in terms of amplitude of the oscillations and location of the bifurcations, on the solution branches corresponding to the first and second register. The ghost reed simplification has limited influence at low values of the blowing pressure parameter: the diagrams are similar. This is true even for "beating reed" regimes, in which the reed coincides with the lay. The most noticeable discrepancies occur near the extinction of the oscillations, at high blowing pressure.
