I am a huge fan of Karsten's necks on saxophone. He makes some of the best custom necks.
I am keen to get a new neck for my bass clarinet but i have not seen much comments/reviews about his bass clarinet necks.
Does anybody here have one and care to comment?
has anyone come across any of these necks, and if so, have you seen them in anything other than a 1? I love the neck of my TT but I’d be curious to find one of the other necks available for TTs if they’re still floating around somewhere.

My hypothesis has been that they were meant to...

any help or hint is greatly appreciated
I think I'd play more if I kept my saxophone assembled and on a stand rather than in the case. I work from home often and it's nice to take a quick break and play, even if it's brief. Plus I like having it on display, and I could save space with a wall stand. I know it's not great for the life...
