Here is my review of the new Pro-One Soprano Saxophone (Model SS6200) from Antigua. This video shows me unboxing and playing it. I love the dark gold lacquer finish of the saxophone and the premium feel it has in my hands. Also, I am really impressed with some of the design features this professional level saxophone has.

-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.
