“When I first purchased my Cannonball Alto, I was impressed by its rich tone and unique finish. I was excited to own a horn that offered style, performance and durability. Cannonball included 2 neck pieces, a beautiful case and accessories that were very convenient for a touring musician. Cannonball Saxophones really allow musicians to take their career and performance to the next level. I’m so proud and humbled to be a part of the family.” ~ J. Boykin
