About 5 years old - recently serviced and playing beautifully. Seriously gorgeous sax; frosted nickel finish to the body, polished nickel to the keys and semi-precious stone key-touches. 2 necks; frosted silver so-called "fat neck" with under-slung octave pip, and frosted nickel conventional neck to match the body. Massive sound, flexible player, solid build quality, great ergonomics. Even Stephen Howard is impressed - Cannonball trio saxophone review

Slight wear to a thumb-rest and a couple of palm keys but otherwise, a stunning looking instrument. Comes in a Pro-Tech Big Bell case. No mouthpiece.


£1000 with 10% to Pete's charity.

PM me for more details if needed.

Honest, if you double-click on the little picture icon, you do get a picture of the a Cannonball Raven tenor reclining seductively on black velvet.

Oops, wrong, right-click and go to "open image in new tab" or something. Technology.....what am I doing wrong here?

It looks better? Less vulnerable to damage? It is at the optimum position in the air-stream as dictated by the laws of fluid dynamics? I honestly have no idea even if there is an advantage. I suspect the reason that they are uncommon might be to do with costs - the under-slung pip has 2 pivots to the single pivot of the conventional arrangement so it's presumably more complicated to manufacture.

Pete - just time for a change mate. I rather fancy a Yam 62 after a visit to Denmark Street the other day......
