I have a Martin Bari w/ no neck...going to have one made by one of these guys...
Y'all have strong feelings towards either Gloger or Barone? From what i've read, both of these guys are the tops...hoping to get some info from folks who have worked with either before. thanks!

I'd say Gloger. You can call Phil and see if he would do something like a vintage neck but I've never seen a Barone bari neck with an octave vent only ones for more modern style baris. I think before I did either I'd call around and see if any of the vintage horn shops have one around that they would sell me.

As said Barone necks are for Selmer clones they are not only missing the octave key but they are much shorter and of a completely different design.

In the aftermarket neck market there are definitely two different strains , one is made up by the makers or resellers of necks which are targeted at the " standard" horns on the market: Selmer, Yamaha, Keilwerth......... some others make neck that are close copies of the original and that are actually able to modify their design to specs.

These makers are the only ones who can actually REPRODUCE a neck as it was on a vintage horn!

Gloger belongs tho this second type of makers. Another place , also in Holland, which somehow specialises in Martin necks is the Blazersatelier in Tilburg

here they show in particular a Martin Bariton neck sold for 335€ (and since that is VAT included for sales outside the EU they should sell without 19% VAT)

as you can see that neck is VERY different from a Barone neck!

Thanks Milano, an interesting link - and their prices for the horns are very reasonable!

Gloger made an outstanding silver neck for my early 12M.
Response,feel, craftsmanship, everything very high quality.

How do you contact Gloger? A friend of mine is interested in a tenor neck from him.
