Paul Baron

My professional demands are musically very diverse from classical to rock, big band to studios, solo and section work. All of my XO horns work extremely well in every situation delivering the best sound for every idiom. It's not unusual to have all of those styles in a single Broadway show, like in my current tour of Disney's Aladdin, and I am able to cover all those styles with my XO horns with confidence. They are extremely consistent in design, the workmanship and detail of every horn is so precise and they easily stand up to the rigors on life on the road.
