Wondering if anyone has tried this combination. P.Mauriat doesn't offer much for alternative necks.
Thanks Keith! That's what I was wondering about the yamaha necks. I purchased the horn from Tim at Sax Alley and I saw that he has a couple of P. Mauriat necks is stock so I'll probably make a trip. I'll check out the Tenor Madness route as well.I would have but as I remember (it's been a few years) when I went to try the Yamaha neck on my Sys-76 tenor the bore of the Mauriat was much larger. The tenon from the Yamaha wasn't just loose but rattled around so there was an actual gap that I felt was going to be too much trouble to try and fill by taping and I didn't want to have my Yamaha neck resized. You might want to contact Sax Alley and see what they have. They often have some Yamaha necks in stock as well as a few P. Mauriat necks. I think a better bet might be a Tenor Madness neck. They use a Taiwanese made body for their horns so the tenon sizes maybe a bit closer and their necks play very well. A road trip there (Sax Alley) with your horn might be in order if you have time and want to try a few different options.
