• "The Antigua Pro-One Saxophone is a leap into the 21st Century." - 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. "

  • Ponzol Designed soprano body
    The heart and soul of the Antigua Pro-One soprano is the Peter Ponzol soprano body design. The one-piece body design is free-blowing and perfectly contoured to give you lightning-quick response, evenly balanced resistance, accurate intonation and great tone.
    "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&," Peter said.

    Hybrid rolled tone holes
    Rolled tone holes for the bell keys and straight drawn tone holes in all other areas provide a solid core to the sound with balanced resistance for the player.

    Patent pending trident key arms
    These revolutionary new key arms add strength and stability, providing lightning quick response to the keys.
