The Antigua Power Bell saxophones fall into the category of Great horn at a great price. These instruments have some distinctive features that really set them apart. The power bell horns have a much larger bell flare allowing for greater projection and a huge bottom end!
The bell keys have double bracing on the arms which helps the instrument to stay in proper adjustment for longer periods of time. Now the sound. The power bell series has a very balanced voice. It maintains a nice center to the sound through all dynamics. I would describe it as slightly more centered with a nice complexity of overtones throughout. If you want a very versatile horn at a very affordable price point these are worth playing through.
Contemporary design, premium materials, impeccable craftsmanship and road-worthy reliability team up to make the Power Bell a classic. From the closely guarded processes of annealing the body, the large bell flare, the design of the neck, the size and placement of the body ribs, to the double key arms on the low B, Bb and C keys, no amount of detail is spared in the making of the Power Bell. To cap it off, each Power Bell receives exquisite hand engraving and is available in a variety of beautiful finishes.
