Thread: How much does a Cannonball Sax cost?

  1. #1

    Default How much does a Cannonball Sax cost?

    How much does 'The Raven' Stone Series professional big bell alto sax usually cost? If someone could give me a price range, that would be great. I'd like to know how much I need to save up to buy this .

    You should be able to find one new a little under the 2K mark. 17-1800US.

    I thought I saw a Raven at Sam Ash today, but it was over $2000. I don't remember the exact price, but I thought it was about $2300-2600. Which is why I didn't bother to demo it.

    Went back to Sam Ash yesterday. As it turned out, it wasn't a Raven that I saw so I can't comment on their price there.

    Have you got a thing for dead threads?

    Check the dates.

    Why not add relevant information to a thread, despite its age? Perhaps OboePlayer215 was trying to update the price info in this thread.

    Because the OP posted only once and has been gone for five years. Now folks will just chime in to answer the original question thinking they're helping somebody, but in all actuality are simply wasting their time.

    If you want to make it RELEVANT, then specify the model and the date of purchase.

    I once bought a Mk VI alto for $300. How does that help determine the market value today?

    Oh dammit, I paid too much for my Mark VI alto - $600!!!! Relevancy aside, it was in 1966...

    Yeah those 1960 dollars are an order of magnitude from today's... Heck union scale would have gotten you about $15 for a pretty vanilla gig. How's that for relevance?

    The good news was that you got a good Selmer for all that money.

    No, because people other than the OP will read this thread. The information here might be useful to those people.

    I totally agree about posting purchase date, but I assumed that respondents here were all discussing "'The Raven' Stone Series professional big bell alto sax" as requested by the OP.

    Yes, but they won't look at the date and they'll waste their time responding to the OP; as has already happened. Sure, sometimes old threads are brought back to life with good intentions, but it's also done as a form of trolling.
