  1. Bb Tenor
    I'm searching for a white lacquer tenor. I know there's a Selmer SA80 Series II, and a Cannonball that has been discontinued, that were made in white, but in general it seems to be a very rare color. Is that because the number of coats makes the horn super dark? Is there anything else I...
  2. Cases
    I need a case for my cannonball big bell and was looking at the Gard Low-A wheelie bag since I have had bad experiences with cases without wheels, however I don't know if it will actually fit the cannonball. If anybody knows what cases do fit these horns, let me know.

  5. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone knew what the Stock Cannonball mouthpieces they supply with their horns are modeled after? More specifically the Tenor "C" mouthpiece. A local band director asked me and I don't have an answer for him. Thanks

    Hey everyone, I'm new to playing saxophone (about 3 months). I went to my local music store and found a used Cannonball Wizard for $1,000.00. As a new player, I don't really know if that's worth it or not; I can't find much about Cannonball Wizards on Google. The guy at the store and my music...

    I need more first hand opinions on these horns. Right now I play a YBS-52 and DO NOT want another Yamaha.

    I'm 32 and have been playing sax professionally since my teens. I've always been a Selmer guy. Love the keywork, the sound, everything. I don't really do jazz much anymore. I mainly do the R&B horn band thing. I LOVE my Reference 36 Tenor and never ever thought I would get rid of it. The...
  16. Cannonball
    I have been looking at the Cannonball models. Besides cosmetics, it appears the real difference between the "Big Bell Stone Series" and the "Gerald Albright Signature Series" is the pads and resonators, which for the Albright series are described as "Premium Black Italian Leather Pads" and...
