"The people at Cannonball Music are passionate about making the best horns they possibly can and are willing to try a broad band of materials and nuances. They could be the company that will put an American brand back on the forefront of saxophone manufacturing! Very nice horns. The response and intonation is great. The sound is huge! Lots of power in the horn!" ~ Evan Tate
