Hello from Athens !
James Carter during his visit to Athens for a Half-Note Jazz club concert, visited our workshop in order to test the Paraschos wooden sax necks.
He was so impressed that decided to perform the same evening concert with our wooden necks on his alto and tenor sax.
Then he decided to use our necks as a standard gear...
You can visit the 3 youtube video clips...

Hi!
James told me how much he loves your necks...... VERY IMPRESSED!!!
Those two alto clips he is using his 10MFAN Showboat alto mouthpiece, and he told me he loved the combination of horn, neck, and Mpc. (Check out the Low A Mark VI alto there).
He is killing it on the tenor clip too. Such an amazing player and sweet person.

Players at this level only use the gear that helps them sound their best.

You’re making wonderful products and you should be very proud of your hard work!!!


All the best, Mark

Hi there,
I had pleasure meeting your father in his workshop in Athens in 2006.He adjusted one of his necks for my B&S alto.Although I rarely play it these days ' cause my main horn for the past 10-11 years has been and steel is Selma Mark VI I enjoy it very much everytime I pick it up.It has larger bore and would not fit Selmer.
I also purchased curved barrel for my clarinette.This one gets it's faire share of playing time.The ligature though broke ( off course it had to be matching wooden ligature).
Thanks for your craftsmanship and keep up the good work, Paraschos!

Regards,
Artem

Does anyone have a contact e-mail or phone for Parascho? My tenor neck snapped in two, and I am looking to repair it.

This is what I have found on Google. But it is dated 2011 ( message from SAXISMYAXE).
I remember seeing thread few years ago about them revamping website.

It does not seem to be working though. You may wanna give them a call or pay a visit. That's how I got my products and had good chance to talk to guys. There father sadly is no longer around. I hope their business is all right. They were Yanagisawa and Muramatsu Flutes dealers at the time.
