Description

The Stunning Signature Model of a Living Legend of the Sax!

Gerald Albright needs no introduction, and when he was approached by Cannonball to create a signature model it was clear to see this was a match made in heaven. 

Using the Big Bell Stone Series Model as the template, Gerald has customised his model to best suit his needs. The GA5-SB is adorned with both Silver and Black nickel-plated finishes. The main body tube, body keyword, and Fat Neck (Gerald's preferred neck choice) are Silver Plated and the Bow, Bell and related Keys are Black Nickel. This composition best emphasises the Powerful and Soulful sound that has become Gerald's signature and marries so well with the Stone Series response.

Cannonball has also worked very closely with Gerald to create a stunning engraving unique to this model which even incorporates Gerald's personal passions. Combined with a laser-engraved signature, this sax has a truly unique and classy look.

 As with the regular Stone Series, the instrument is adorned with 16 semi-precious stones (in this case Gerald's preferred Picasso Jasper stones) and comes equipped with 2 necks (1 Standard and 1 ‘Fat’).

Further Detail

BIG BELL This design was created by Cannonball in 2001 and allows the instrument to produce a huge range of dynamics with maximum depth and resonance.

SEMI PRECIOUS STONES Cannonball are famous for the striking look that their beautiful stones add to their saxes, hand cut and polished in their facility in Utah. They are also patented for the way they change the instrument’s resonance. 

Staff Review

"This model encapsulates the full-bodied, powerful sound of Gerald Albright's playing. Upon playing this horn, it is more free-blowing than some others in the shop, however this one manages to retain a truly soulful sound. Both the sound and intonation are consistent throughout the whole range, alongside comfortable key work, making playing this horn as easy as it gets. The inclusion of two necks also allows you to shape the horn into your own and get the sound you want, with the addition of the fat neck. This horn is great for anyone who is looking to play soul, funk, and pop music." - Jody@sax.co.uk
