    Default How many 20th anniversary owners?

    Recently purchased a Big Bell 20th anniversary alto and wondered how many others own an anniversary horn.

    Oh, Oh, Oh, Mr Carter, that's me!

    Just picked up my new VR Anniversary alto today. I am tickled pink with it!

    If I could figure it out, I would post pics.

    Take a seat Vinni and welcome to the neighborhood. I was starting to feel like a party of one.

    I did indeed. It is a beautiful horn. The stones are a big treat as well. I have bought new horns before, but I have not been blown away like this horn has done.

    But the sound is what really knocks me out. I much prefer the traditional size bell. The big bells just shotgun too much for me. Not that I don't like the big bells. They sound good, but once I played the ANNIV model, it was all over.

    I have very short fingers and the action is perfect for me.

    Now, please know that I am a hack sax player. I have been a guitar player all my life and that is my #1 instrument. However, I am fascinated with the alto and what it can do to a song. SO, the horn is my 2nd instrument, if I may call it that. I sure wish I would have started playing it as a kid.

    I have been communicating a lot with Randal Clark of Cannonball and he did the set-up for me personally. Wow! Just amazing.

    A year has come and gone and the Cannonball is a keeper. Practice every day and it's a joy to play. Life is good.
