Saxophone/Cannonball Soprano Saxophone


Hi, take a look at the soprano in this listing:

The seller says that it's a Cannonball Big Bell Global Series. What can you tell me about this soprano and its quality? Would this soprano be suited for professional use? Also the seller has agreed to sell it to me for $750. Is this a good deal?

$750 appears to be a fair deal if the horn is in very good playing condition. I've not played one of these but from all accounts they are decent horns.  I am always leery of horns with the high F# and G keys...especially sopranos which are notoriously pitchy just by their very nature (I'm old school!).

All that being said, I think this is a decently solid horn that should hold up fine. They get good reviews overall. As far as 'pro' use, it's the player not the horn :)
