So a while ago i bought a dirt cheap curved sop off ebay (it was badged as a 'bently'.....fairly certain its chinese). its not a bad horn considering how little i paid for it.

Now i know that its never going to be great but i wanted to get some experience playing sop and couldnt afford anything better so bought this fella.

The big question is.......i was thinking of buying a yanagisawa crook to put on it (the horn is a copy of a yanagisawa) as they are fairly cheap (say £80 GBP) when compared to the cost of a decent curved sop. So has anyone any experience of this or anyone with any advice on if they think its worth looking into........any help thoughts would be much appreciated........

Yes, I used a T991 neck on my Buescher 400 for some time. Getting the tenon to the right size was a nightmare for my tech guy, but he pulled it off. The underslung Yani neck looked great on the 400 but really brightened up the horn too much. I eventually got my original neck rebuilt and have used it ever since.

If the Bently is a true copy of the Yani, your mileage may be better than mine. You may want to check out the tenon sizes first to make sure it can be done.
