We are about to release our NEW model tenor saxophone!!! In fact, besides talking with random people about it, this is the first mention on the web that there is a new TM Custom saxophone about to be released :) Thing is, we have been going in circles trying to come up for a name! Our original model is the TM Custom 500SL and so we'd like to continue with the TM Custom aspect, but TM Custom _______ ?? This is where you SOTW's can help. We are offering a $300 store credit towards whatever you want to the winner. Below will be the rules and a little about the new model for inspiration.

INFO on the NEW TM CUSTOM ___________

- Straight tone holes
- Different tone hole dimensions completely from the 500SL model
- Different metal composition
- Different neck
- Different core sound and color.
- Influenced more by a Selmer than our previous saxophone.
- "Sweeter and more singing in quality" than our 500SL model.

RULES for the competition:

- Submissions will be open for 1 week. I will close submissions on June 8th.
- I will post the top 5 - 10 submissions as voted on by Jordy, Jimmy and I.
- We will take these to the team and decide over the weekend what's the best choice for us.
- I will announce the winner on Monday, June 11th.
- You can submit as many name ideas as possible.
- Feel free to ask any questions on the thread as I will check it regularly.

**** The 500SL model is the original model of TM Custom and will still be available! This new model is simply to expand the line and complement the 500SL.****


READY ... SET ... GO!

How about TM Custom Voice? Or if you want to accentuate the French Selmer angle try TM Custom Couleur.

Where does 500SL come from, does it represent anything in particular about the horn?
The 500SL was a reference to the neck we had designed and paired with it for 8 years. The truth is, the last few years we have paired a different neck with it (also unique to our specific saxophone), BUT the marketing is there and we are hesitant to change it at this point to rename the original too.
