Scott Johnson

"Nothing compares to the consistency Cannonball Saxophones produces in all of their horns. The horns have excellent intonation, a very comfortable layout, and the horns are suited to play ALL styles of music. I have to say that I can’t see myself playing on any other horn besides Cannonball Saxophones." ~ Scott Johnson
