Cannonball Pete Christlieb Alto Saxophone, Near Mint
Cannonball Pete Christlieb alto saxophone, s/n 146,xxx. Here is a gorgeous one-owner saxophone that is in near mint condition. I believe that this particular model has been rebranded the Vintage Reborn series, and is the Brute finish. It has a gorgeous, warm amber lacquer and matching pearl touches. This is one of the most visually appealing modern saxophones I've come across.
Cannonball saxophones continue to surprise me with their quality. For the money, this is an impressive horn. It has a gorgeous, lush sound that is less bright than a modern Yamaha or Selmer. The tone and response is strikingly even from top to bottom and the entire range pops out with ease. The previous owner was mainly a tenor player, so this one has relatively few miles on it.
