Hey. Just wondering if anyone knows what silver neck Brecker played on. I saw it was a Selmer. Anyone got anymore details?
Where?SneekyJones said:Were original silver Selmer MK VI saxes plated, sterling, burnished? Her in lies the answer.
Off topic I guess:BarrySachs said:Brecker had several mk6s, I can't remember the serial #s, but the was one horn that he favoured. Terry Deane would no more about his horns beceause he worked on them in the mid-late '90s. I played one of them, an original lacquer #70,xxx that made me sound like Dexter. It was one of the best 6s I've ever played. Who knows why it wasn't MB's main horn?
Sorry, Dr G, I'm confused :twisted: . Are you saying that silver necks are actually not made of silver or something? If you speak up I may hear you...Dr G said:There. Are you happy? You made me yell.
Yes, I've noticed that.RootyTootoot said:Sorry, Dr G, I'm confused...
Why, thank you for asking. Silver necks, such as the Gloger that I had, actually ARE made of silver. There are, however, some shiny objects that crows and the like might mistake for silver that are not silver. They, in fact, could be of a variety of materials including platinum, aluminum (aka aluminium), nickel, chromium, or mylar.RootyTootoot said:Are you saying that silver necks are actually not made of silver or something?

I sure wish I could buy a silver VI just b/c I liked the way its neck sounded on my SA80 I.
If that quote was directed to my above comment, I sincerely apologize Dr G. I also stated:It's people like you that make others think that a silver neck sounds better.
Before you go getting mad, I would also like to add that if you listen to Mikes playing from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 00's....his voice is the same regardless of equipment. Isn't that the most important thing? To be able to establish a voice on your horn. One that can be recognized by the ear?I dig Mike's late 80's vibe with the stripped neck and Dukoff
