The PRO-ONE is a brand new saxophone for the 21st Century, designed by Peter Ponzol. With it's mixture of drawn & rolled tone holes plus some truly innovative features this is one sax you must check out


Ponzol Neck Design

The heart and soul of the new Antigua Pro-One is the Peter Ponzol neck design. This new neck is free-blowing, has lightning quick response, precise intonation and great tone quality. Antigua Pro-One necks are designed and built to meet the strict standards set forth by Peter Ponzol.


Hybrid Rolled Tone Holes

The Antigua Pro-One is revolutionary and unique as it is the first hybrid rolled tone hole saxophone. The Pro-One has rolled tone holes for the bell keys and straight drawn tone holes in all other areas to balance response and tone. The rolled tone holes provide a larger contact area for the pads to seal and add needed strength where it matters most. This provides faster, more nimble response from the low notes and a deep rich tone.


Trident™ Key Arms

Double key arms add strength to the low B, Bb and C keys. The Pro-One design carries this feature 2 steps further with the revolutionary Ponzol Trident adjustable arms. This new design, exclusive to the Antigua Pro-One, improves radial rigidity and features 2 adjustment arms to set and balance these critical keys. The difference this new design makes is truly amazing.


Hybrid Bell Diameter

There is a lot of mystique and marketing speak surrounding the bell diameter of the saxophone. This lead the design team, headed by Peter Ponzol to seek to quantify the role of the saxophone bell, remove the mystique and answer the question "what is the best bell size for saxophones?" Our research led us to the optimum bell diameter and shape to obtain the best balance, response and tone.


Ergonomic Keyboard

An extensive ergonomic study of the saxophone keyboard was conducted by the Antigua Pro-One design team. The purpose of the study was to refine the positions and placement of the keys, making the Pro-One work with the player, making it easier to play fast and difficult passages and promote better feel.


F to F# Bridge Key

A bridge arm to the F key of the Antigua Pro-One facilitates faster action and response in the right hand key section. The Pro-One is designed to have the best feel and response.
