Cannonball T4-L Gold Lacquer - Tenor Saxophone

£2,422.00
SKU T4-L

Looking for something different?  Cannonball saxes bring you elegance of design, beautiful aesthetics, and sumptuous tone quality!

Introducing the new Standard model Cannonball T4-L Gold Lacquered tenor saxophone, belonging to their highly reputed Big Bell Stone series.  Acoustically it is identical to the Premium models in the T5 range, however, one or two of the bells and whistles have been removed to allow the T4-L to bring players that trademark Cannonball sound, but at a slightly more affordable price-point. 

Whereas the T5 Premium instruments are adorned with 16 semi-precious stones each and come equipped with 2 necks (1 Standard and 1 ‘Fat’) the Regular models include 9 stones on the left and right stacks plus the Standard neck only.  Otherwise, the T4 models have the same body, neck, keys, design, ergonomics etc of the top-flight Premium models, making it more of a realistic proposition to own a Cannonball without having to spend top dollar.

There are 3 finishes available in the Standard range, and this Gold lacquered version offers the most traditional look in comparison to the other two models.  Check out our listings for the Mad Meg (unlacquered) and Black Polished Nickel versions if you are after something a little different!

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

I’ve always been a fan of Cannonball saxes.  Any of the models from the Big Bell series gives me the same feeling – one of solidity, effortless power, rich tone and quality. There is enough flexibility on hand to deliver most styles of music, but I find that these instruments really ‘sing’ when they are played in a contemporary setting.  Anything along the lines of pop, soul, funk, rock, etc and particularly when you put a lot of air down the sax it really feels like the sound takes on a life of its own.  It’s exciting and makes me want to play it more, which is definitely the feeling you want to get from your sax!  I also love how solid and comfortable the key ergonomics feel.  Considering this is a slightly reduced version of the T5 model there is nothing really lacking from the playing point of view as the ‘Standard’ neck gives me everything I need tonally, and the reduced stone-count is something that doesn’t trouble me!
