New engraving from Cannonball. Yay or Nay?

I mean, if you're playing in a Mexican Ska band (which I have and often times revisit), this is perfect. A beater horn that looks the part where all you *really* need to do is be LOUD and dance? Get a matching fashion piece and you're set.

But in good taste? Nononononononono. No. No. Certainly not.

Thank you, no.


That, my friend, is why engravers are not allowed to drink at work.


Just say "No" to "One more shot?"

For what it is, it looks very well done, however it's not my cup of tea. I think it's also more of the dark (or black) lacquer it's on that makes it stick out so much. So in short, THAT engraving on THAT lacquer is a poor choice. I dunno if I'd like it on more traditional colored lacquer.

How long before this company, already known for fraudulent claims such as stone key touches improving intonation, will tell us the engraving allows for more cutting edge articulation...

I am unaware of them ever claiming this. Do you have a link or any proof they made this claim regarding intonation? I know they claim the stones change the way the horn "resonates" with some kind of test to prove it, but I've never heard them say it improves intonation.

I agree with you. Not my cup of tea, but it will appeal to some of the younger generation. Question is, will the parents fund it? Also, I've seen these and the lacquer is what I would consider "purple".

Thank you Grumps. You won me $20.00 in a bet. I bet another member of this group that if I posted an ugly engraving that someone, within 20 replies,would bring up stones and intonation. My friend said "no way, I'll bet you $20," if we meet in person, I'll buy you a drink.
