"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. ”
● 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.

Say goodbye to the sticky G# pad blues! This simple yet brilliant design lifts the G# pad from the tone hole every time.

The heart and soul of the Antigua Pro-One is the Peter Ponzol neck design. The legendary Ponzol P1 neck is free-blowing and perfectly contoured to give you lightning-quick response, evenly balanced resistance, accurate intonation and great tone.
