Cannonball Mad Meg
Mad Meg is the bare brass version of the Big Bell Global series, the top line of Cannonball. Ths one has hardly been played and has been in the case on the shelf for more then 20 years. The pads are as new. The keywork and the way it feels is modern, the looks and sound are vintage, a very nice combination. The sound is real vintage American, dark and heavy. You can buy it as is: I have made sure that the instrument is closing properly and it plays smoothly from top to bottom. Then it will cost € 1400. You can also have some work done: I would suggest a complete disassembly, replacing all the cork and felt, new oil, caring the pads with leather grease, making it tight again, regulating and optimising it. That will cost you € 300 extra.
