After many years of requests, we have worked with Kirk Whalum to present the KIRK WHALUM signature series neck for SX90R tenor saxophone.

- dual bracing
- nickel plated finish
- gold lacquer octave key

This is the exact same neck Kirk plays today, and will offer a more focused tone to your SX90R tenor in any finish.

FAQ
- This is designed for SX90R tenor only
- There is only one finish option

Contact any authorized Buffet Crampon/Julius Keilwerth dealer for pricing and delivery info.

It says: "These necks are great for any one looking to darken their own sound." I believed it was making the sound brighter and more focused?
I try to be careful using "brighter or darker" as it often tends to be relative to the player / mouthpiece / prefereces / etc... However I do feel the sound has more focus with this neck. But again, it is best to evaluate for yourself as personal responses may vary based on your set up.

Please dont say this is the exact same neck Kirk plays today. Unfortunately it is not the same neck. There is no neck plate on this one so sound will be different. Look at the Kirks photos. We wanted the same neck, not almost the same. Neck plate is important, should give more core... etc.

Actually FunkyHorn, I now have no more sticky keys on the Keilwerth,ha, I kid you not:mrgreen:...I used waxpaper and the stickiness went away.:whistle: So now I'm liking the Keilwerth again.:shock: I played my Keilwerth and Mark VI back to back last night again for a bunch of hours. Conclusion: I love both my Mark VI and Keilwerth, it's like having both Chocolate and Vanilla, lol:laughing:...they're both very resonant, have lot's of character to the sound:headbang:...not really sure which one would be the back up now.:dontknow:

Keilwerth makes great horns, just wish they would fix those darn sticky pads!:argue:
