Re: Cannonball vs. Mauriat
I have not had the opportunity to try the Mauriat horns..I have had some experience with the Cannonball product, and consider them to be a very fine product, and quite an excellent buy for the price range that they are in. I am especially impressed with the Vintage models, both the Lady Godiva and the Pete Christlieb models. The only difference I can tell between the two Models is in the engraving, but I may have missed something..I really dig the tenors in the Vintage line..very tight, with a nice solid feel and sound. These are not eight thousand dollar horns..maybe the eight thousand dollar horns are overpriced? I'm not taken with the black horns..old school, i am..it's a matter of taste. I find the CB's to be sturdy and well put together..I am a pro repair tech..so...you might want to look into them. Good luck in your search.
