After years of playing cheaper vintage saxes, I purchased 2 cannonballs this weekend! I bought a new Raven alto, and a Global Series black nickel tenor. Have to say, they look great together, and sound great too! I tested the Raven against a 52nd Street, a Yamaha 62III, and CB Brute/Nickel/Ruby, and it was the clear winner! The tenor was a happy accident, a family in the city I was visiting had it for sale, and my wife and I agreed it was too good a deal to pass up. While I've been happy with my Chu Berry alto, I felt I needed a modern horn to begin grad school, and I have nothing resembling a professional tenor.

Would a SS fat neck fit a Global tenor by any chance? It came with the silver neck for that model, but I'm digging the SS Fat Neck on my alto.

While working a job in Vegas back in 2012, I stopped in a local Sam Ash after work. I wanted to try some mouthpieces out so they set me up with a Raven to try them. Damn if I didn't fall in love with that horn. I vowed that I would buy one when I got back home, but I didn't. I bought the Hot Spur instead, which is pretty much the same as the Raven but with a silver bell. Well, fast forward to 2020. This spring I picked up a new neck for my YAS-62. I pretty much can't put the Yamaha down these days as it sounds/plays so good, so my Cannonball is in the closet now. Not thinking of selling though, it's a great horn to have as a backup.
