I'm a bari player most of the time. But I just got a job as a tenor player in a new jazz restaurant. So I need to purchase a quality tenor sax. I have never gotten the opportunity to try out a cannonball tenor, but I've tried a Gerald Albright and a Vintage Reborn alto sax. I love the way both of them play. I've been told that the tenors are the same if not better than the altos. And the price is incredible. Of course I'm going to try several horns before I purchase, but I just wanted to know some opinions. What is the difference in the playing of the Big Bell, Albright, and VR models? And what does the finish do to the sound? I really like the Raven and Hotspur for the Stone series, and the unlacquered and brute for the VR. I was under the impression that there is only one finish available for the Albright tenor. I'm looking for the best sounding jazz horn. One that has the versatility for belting out rock and singing a quiet ballad. Thanks for the help!
