"I was looking for a horn that could give me the best possible sound and control within a number of diverse musical settings; the Cannonball Vintage Reborn pro tenor has delivered exceptional results, bridging the gap brilliantly between the warm vintage sound of an old horn while maintaining the functionality and reliability of a new horn. The constancy of intonation throughout the full range is impressive, enabling me to work within horn sections and session environments with ease. It's held up extremely well having been toured with around the world extensively. Perhaps the most rewarding part of the instrument is knowing that I can get a real range of dynamics and textures right down to fantastic control over low subtone phrases, and when needed, I can push it into a real powerhouse of a tenor sound!" ~ Tim Ower
