The ProOne is Antigua’s most versatile saxophone series. Peter Ponzol, the renowned player and designer, considers the ProOne saxophone the ultimate expression of his design concepts.
From the G# lifter that ensures it never sticks, to the B-C# roller and F-F# bridge, this is the professional’s dream saxophone. The heart and soul of the ProOne is the Ponzol neck, with precise intonation and consistency at any volume level. The series also features trident key arms on the low register keys that can be adjusted to improve clear, concise entrances without the fear of fluttering.
The first “hybrid,” the combination of drawn tone holes with the ringed bell key tone holes offers a balanced sound while adding strength where it is needed most. The soprano is a one-piece body so players avoid the turbulence that occurs where the neck detaches. The custom alloy and design of the Pro-One provides a nimble response and a brilliantly rich and dark tone.
