Instead of buying a new sax, i was wondering if my YTS 26 can take a V1 or G1 neck.

Thanks

A better neck possibly could make a positive difference in your horn. Its likely that the necks mentioned could be easily adapted to your horn and might just drop in.

I have the G1 that came with my Yas 82Z and both the Yamaha V1 and Barone necks fit easily into the 82Z. I also tried the stock neck on a an older 21 and it fit my horn. I'm using now a neck from a Keilwerth St 90 and like the tone alot Neck is a little loose so I use plumbers teflon tape to get a better seal. K

I see one mention of it on post #23 that鈥檚 a easy fix. My concern would be the tenon size.
Still plenty affordable enough to send Yamaha a inquiry email to qualify that.

Did custom search 鈥 V1 neck on 26鈥 in the custom search box on the upper portion of our page. Here鈥檚 the result. You may try different keywords with better success.

The 82z G3 neck fits the YTS-23 but the octave key needs to be reshaped slightly. Made the 23 sound much richer, fuller, darker, with excellent intonation. A keeper mod.

So to close the loop. The V1 neck tenon is a little smaller and needs to be enlarged by a technician. A small extension needs to be added to the octave mechanism and then it's all systems go. The tone is slightly better but to me, not significantly so. Thanks
