Let me caution anyone out there who wants to buy a Cannonball tenor. i am currently playing a Vintage Reborn tenor 6 nights a week 3 45 minutes sets a night standing. Although the horn is great I would not recommend it. It has wrecked my left shoulder with how much it weighs. So much so that I have to ship my vintage Super 20 which is way lighter and before all you neck strap freaks start responding I have tried everything from the sax holder pro which is a very hard rubber on your shoulders and has no cushion on your shoulders to the Boston sax strap with the t bar and also the Jupiter gig strap, which also has no cushion for your shoulders it is very hard metal. Both of the shoulder straps dig into your shoulders which is very painful. All of these have not worked and I believe it is because of the weight of this horn. Maybe the vintage horn makers new better than to make horns so heavy they are uncomfortable to play. Taiwan and Cannonball should get a clue from the vintage horn makers.
