    Default Cannonball Tenor (Brute Finish) Price update

    Hey folks. I've been looking around at prices for a Cannonball Tenor (Brute) getting prices. This is more of an FYI for those interested. I'm down in south Texas and the going price for these are between $3,200 and $3,400. Not sure how they fare around the country for being sold new. I know some people are wondering about prices sometimes. Just FYI. Later.

    I was just in Clearwater on vacation and the Cannonball tenors were I think $3100 for BBSS but only $2800 for vintage reborn and key series.

    I know L and L Music in Gaithersburg, Maryland sells them. They usually have a Christmas sale and sell these for a decent discount. L and L needs to be very competitive on price because Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center is located a short drive away. Chuck Levin does not sell Cannonball, but they sell lots of other horns at very good prices so L and L keeps their prices low so that they can survive in the DC market. I am pretty sure if you call L and L and ask for Steve, the owner, he will give you a fair price.

    Do you have any idea what the Christmas discount brings the price down to? I may buy a soprano from them at some point…

    I am not sure what the final price ends up being. I am pretty sure that if you negotiate with them you will get a good deal. If I recall correctly, in the past they have offered 30% off on new horns. However, that is off of a higher price than one would pay normally when they are not running the sale. For example, if the horn has a suggested retail price of $3000, they may normally sell it for $2500, but with the sale it would be $2100. I am just making these numbers up to demonstrate my point. I would call and try to negotiate. You can often get a good deal even if they are not running a sale just by talking to them. Realize they need to make money so have an idea of what a realistic price is and then negotiate from there.

    $3000 for a Cannonball. I had no idea they had gotten so expensive.

    That is about 200 bucks more than what I paid for my Brute alto last year. Prices are going up quick.

    Not going up at all. I could have purchased a brute finish for $200 less.

    Really. I paid $200 more because I liked the finish on the anniversary edition. That says a lot about me. I've never claimed to be the sharpest pencil in the box. :-)

    I'd pay $200 extra for the 20th anniversary one.
