USED Cannonball A5 Big Bell Stone Series Professional Alto Saxophone - "Mad Meg"
Unlacquered Body and Keys
The Big Bell®, created by Cannonball® in 2001, enhances the ability to create a broad range of dynamics for a depth of the sound color and lower partials. The increased size also lends to a big, warm sound.
Semi-precious stones adorn the key touches, necks, and bell key guard of the Premium Big Bell® Stone Series®. These beautiful stones give the instrument a striking look, and are also patented for the way they change the instrument’s resonance.
Our Big Bell® Stone Series® is beautifully hand engraved by our artisans here in the USA. (excluding ice finishes, ie. Raven®, Hotspur™)
Each Premium Pro Big Bell® Stone Series® saxophone (A5) comes standard with two hand-customized necks. The second neck on alto and tenor models is the FAT Neck® which has the octave tube on the underside of the neck. This creates a more free-blowing feel and emphasizes the mids and lows, resulting in a FAT feel and FAT sound.
