You Decide to go with a one-piece design for the Pro-One soprano, as well as a totally new body. What’s special about it?

 

“My goal was to use modern ergonomics with a completely new bore and taper to return the soprano to a saxophone sound. The point where the neck detaches is a crucial part of the air column and this creates a lot of turbulence at this critical point, so saxophones with two necks can be difficult to control at the octave break.” said by Peter Ponzol.

 

Redesigning a musical instrument is a daunting and delicate challenge. Peter Ponzol has been designing saxophones for more than three decades, in addition to being a well-traveled and experienced player. Very few people have Peter’s understanding of the design principles of the instrument, and the Antigua Pro-One is the ultimate expression of his concepts. As Peter says, “This collaboration finally gets a lifetime of ideas out of my head and into reality.”
