My 54 Mk VI alto had tuning problems that were caused by the neck (I wonder if it was because it was an early model). So I ordered a copper alto neck from Karsten Gloger, and we agreed it would be a Cigar Cutter curve. The result is a total success: intonation problems are gone, and the horn has fabulous tone and projection. The neck is also very beautifully made, at a very reasonable price for something handmade. It took a bit of time, but the wait was more than worth it.

Sounds interesting. Kartsen is a real craftsman.

When you say it uses "a Balanced Action curve" does that relate to the angle of the neck or the internal bore profile ?

I assume the latter (being uninformed about these things), because it had to do with tone and intonation. Just checked: it was a Cigar Cutter curve! (It works well on my Cigar Cutter, too.)
