"For over a year I tried to find a good Mark V1 alto and tenor to replace my old Mark V1's that have seen better days but with no success - very frustrating. Also Yamaha have couriered me four custom altos and three custom tenors to try and I was considering changing to Yamaha when I discovered Cannonball saxes. I love them. They have a big vibrant sound, excellent intonation and are extremely easy to adjust to when I have to change from flute, oboe or bassoon to sax. The rich gold finish and design is better than I have usually seen on any other saxes.
Tevis and Sheryl are obviously very dedicated and conscientious with their Cannonball instruments which is rare amongst instrument makers these days." ~ Errol Buddle
