I have found several references online suggesting that Adrian Rollini played a modified neck on his bass sax, but no info on how it was modified. Anybody have any info?

Rollini published a multi-part guide to bass sax playing in The Melody Maker in 1929 (published only in Britain - the bass sax was already falling out of favor in the USA).

He wrote that he used a bari mouthpiece and reeds, but did not mention the neck.

So the mod might have been as simple as a thinner neck cork, to fit the smaller diameter bari mpc shank.
