...bought a new sax on E-bay.

Cannonball Nickel-Silver Tenor T5-BS for £629.

Been used by a pro for 18 months - he's now been given a Mauriat.

Enjoy - I saw that one and was tempted......but I'm currently awaiting the arrival of a BW M2 tenor which I've bought from a forum member in Spain. Only 3 more weeks to go!

Have fun!

That is a bargain price Nick - Stone series tenors usually go for about double that. No mention of mouthpiece - if the original is included, don't dismiss it - they are only a 5, so may not suit your style, but they are nice pieces.

I've been communicating with him via e-mail. He's including the original mouthpiece, but I'll probably be using my Berg-Larsen.
He originally had a 'buy it now' price of £999, so yes, I think I did get a bargain.

I hope it comes early this week!!!

Got it!!

The Cannonball arrived today - it looks lovely, but does need a polish. Any ideas what I should use? Don't want to damage it at all.

Haven't had a chance to play it, haven't got a reed with me, but the keys feel much nicer and more responsive than my Sukkusu.

Just got to take it home and face the music from the missus now!!!

I have a tenor my wife doesn't know about. She wasn't in when I got it home, and now it's in with the rest of the herd she doesn't seem to have noticed. Doesn't seem to be much of a reason to tell her.......

I'll probably get shot down in flames but I have it on good authority(from my tech tutor)VERY HANDY that pledge or mister sheen as they say makes every thing clean and does just what it says on the tin.

I believe the easiest way is to put a chair leg or similar in a vice wrapped well with old sheets or the likes push the bell on to this till held firmly but not damaging sax spray liberally with your choice and then with strip of cloth clean sax by threading strips through various bits on the sax and pulling from side to side and I believe it can be used on the pads too...best of luck....john

If it's that guy from the Go Compare ad, your missus is deaf.
