Rob Rose"Cannonball Saxophones are by far the best classical saxophones I have ever played.They offer better intonation, response, and tone than my previous "Big 4" horns. The Brute alto has greatly facilitated the difficult altissimo passages of the Finney Concerto as well as the tricky large intervals of the Bonneau Caprice and the Rueff Sonate. Your innovations in design are engenious. Thanks Cannonball!" ~ Rob Rose
