Calocan, you must be using Chrome with the language set to Italian, we've seen others with the same " problem", when you write, even if in English (and you have to here on SOTW) the system translates into the settings language.

Please change this on account of the fact that few will understand (I do, Italian is my native language) and because the forum's rules require it

ok ok as far as the modifications are concerned for me it is not a big problem I would like to know only the measurements of the original neck, I intend to modify the aftermarket neck by creating an octave hole in the body cap and making a receiver with the same original cap that luckily it exists. this baritone sax model originally fitted a cap that fits in place of the neck and serves as a protection for the octave key which rightly when the neck is not inserted inside the body of the sax it remains suspended without any protection with the danger that it can twist or bend, with the cap inserted this does not happen now I can make all the changes I want, I am a decent wind instrument repairman I think I can 馃憤 thank you for everyone

again @calocan, your browser must be Chrome and it translates directly into the settings language, in your case Italian, this is really awkward because not only is against the rules but in order for members to want to read your post they have to tralsate the post into their language while the forum's language is English.

Holtons are rather rare a brand and baritones even more, then, among them you are looking for a particular type, the ones with the octave pip o the neck and the body with the keycup.

That's what in Italian is called " L'araba fenice " or an " hen's tooth" in English.

your best bet is to see the receiver's diamenter of your horn ( you have that), then purchase one of the many octave-less baritone necks on line and THEN determine if the length is enough, Should it not be enough you can still lengthen.

Even if you find someone with this particualr horn, and he will give you the neck, you still have to modify one such neck and chances are that you will have to do exactly what I described.

I think the Holton neck is ever so slightly longer than one of these necks but that may or may not affect intonation depending on the mouthpiece.

It will only cost you $49 but you have material to work on, rather than looking for the elusive possibility that someone may have a very rare horn which very few own.
