Vasilis Xenopoulos"After almost 15 years of playing with my beloved Selmer, I felt I had to change into something that would cover the needs and demands of a modern jazz/contemporary player. The only (and best) description I could give about how I felt when I tried my Stone Series Cannonball, is that it made my old horn sound as if I was playing in mono mode. The depth of the sound and the ability of maintaining the tone quality regardless of the amount of blowing, are characteristics I was looking for a long time in a horn and thanks to Cannonball, I found them!" ~ Vasilis Xenopoulos
