  1. Five years ago I started playing the alto saxophone. I have progressed very well after not have been playing a musical instrument (formally concert baritone and trombone ) for thirty-seven years. I have just recently purchased a Cannon Ball alto saxophone , stone series in black polished nickel.
    Aside from being the most beautiful saxophone on the market and a piece of art , the sound quality coming from that saxophone is awesome ,just awesome ! I play it every day and just cannot put it down! If you ever need a promoter I’m your man .
    Thank you for producing such fine and beautiful instruments.
    Sincerely yours,
    Chuck Dewey
