    Do you recognize the saxophone in the photo? I've never seen a neck like this. What is this model?

    hi all, for a 10m with serial on body of 352xxx and a 3 digit on the neck of 325 (facing forward on the rim where the neck goes into the body) - what does this neck id mean? is it the number of thousands that should match the body or maybe the factory made necks separately , stamped them, and...
  3. Yamaha
    I currently play a Yamaha 62II Alto, which I love. However, the G2 neck isn't cutting, it has a dent in it and also (due to tuning and intonation problems associated with it). I'm looking at getting a new neck. The V1 neck seems to be the best option. I am debating between the Silver Plated Neck...

    Hi all, (after years of just reading, I'd like to make a first post here, so a short introduction is in place). I'm Teake, playing tenor for about 35 years, in several pop/blues/jazz/gospel/bigband settings. I've got a Vito "Duke" tenor, made in france, nr 18778. Which probably makes it a...
  5. Manufacturing/ Construction
    I've played on and owned a number of saxes (of various sizes) that have had brass "sleeves" between 1-2cm in length soldered onto the interior of the (corked) mouthpiece end of the neck, and I've always wondered what exactly these were meant to do. My hypothesis has been that they were meant to...

    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...
  8. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello Masters, Hope you are doing well and earning mucho deniro, because you deserve it for the amazing work you do! I am current working on another student Bundy from the 1970s and trying to fix the neck which has some pull-down. I am attaching a photo of the neck, which I have already fixed...

    Hello everyone, My cousin recently acquired a King Cleveland 613 Alto SN #297XXX (Eastlake made?) and it does not come with a neck. Does anyone know where to get a 613 neck replacement or maybe an alternative neck for it?

    Can you tell me what kind of neck this is? This neck came with a King Super 20 alto (as a second neck), but I am pretty sure it is not right for this horn. The neck tenon fits fine, but the bottom part of the octave mechanism is about 1/2 inch higher up than it ought to be. In other words, it...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    This was a pretty specific, very fun challenge. A friend of mine in NYC, a great alto player named Jeremy Udden, has gotten totally dialed in on a long shank/conn combo and loves the way it feels EXCEPT that he's right on pitch with the mouthpiece all the way in and the microtuner turned all...

    Looks like the same brace as a Conn 10M under-slung double socket. Any ideas? thanks!

    Hey guys I got this Mark VI tenor neck from my tech to try out on my VI. He salvaged it from a horn, that was run over by a car but he doesn't know what serial it was. Anyone can guess from the pictures? It sounds to me like a later serial, very even low resistance and on the brighter side of...

    hi, i would need some help on how Noblet tenor necks are built and would greatly appreciate any feedback/info/hints/help. The noblet tenor that i bought a while ago came with a neck that is flattened in the bend of the neck (common problem i assume...). i need to have the neck restored/rebuild...

    Okay so I've been looking for a Martin Tenor neck for a while now and it's not that easy to find one. I have my original serial number matching neck but I'd like to experiment with pickup mic (in mix with basic bell micing technique) and don't want to adjust an original neck in any way. I know...
  16. Holton
    I took my recently acquired 233 alto to the tech today to get it up and running and, aside from it needing quite a bit of work, he said he was reluctant to even work on it since it doesn't have the right neck. I'm not proud of how ignorant I was buying an old Holton with brass keys and a neck...

    Hi, Gloger-handKraft and Aronson have confirmed that they can make a custom replacement neck specifically for SDA alto. Both have excellent reputation and there is not much difference in price. Shipping costs are not an issues as I can have the neck delivered in the US or Europe. Any comments...

    Neck for H-Couf Superba I Bari? Hi - I posted on the Parts Wanted forum, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to also post in the H-Couf/Keilwerth forum... I have a H Couf Superba I bari that got off eBay a couple of years ago. It didn't have the original neck, but the seller included a Yamaha (I...

    My tech recommends that I try to find a new neck but I don't know where to look. The sn of my 'crat is 342515 which puts it around 1951. Any ideas where to find one?
  20. Bb Tenor
    Hello, I have a Cannonball Vintage Reborn tenor saxophone. When I looked into the neck, I saw that it isn't even. There aren't only some scratches, but this thing that juts out a little which seems to be metal. I've made some pictures about it and I want to know if this is normal / intended? I...
