Heritage Tenor Neck - Bare Brass

The Heritage Tenor Saxophone neck was conceived from my twin passions; restoring vintage saxophones and playing them. I have had the privilege as a repairman to examine and test hundreds of vintage necks and put into the concept of the Heritage little pieces of my favorite attributes from each one that I found to be exceptional. A significant amount of influence for this neck comes from the free blowing characteristics I have found in earlier Selmers such as the Radio Improved and Balanced Action horns. These models are getting harder and harder to find and often people prefer their sound but not their ergonomics, so I set out to produce a neck that would allow players to experience the magic of these older saxophones on more standard horns. After several years of measuring and many prototypes, the Heritage neck was born.

The Heritage neck plays with more flexibility and has more width to the sound than a standard Mark VI or VI style neck without sacrificing control or pitch. I find it offers the player more room to push and opens up the middle register which is often more covered on tenor, producing a more homogenous sound across the horn. It is my dream neck and I am proud to share it with you!

-Jack Finucane, owner and repair technician

The Bare Brass Heritage neck is made with a proprietary alloy sourced from Germany. Each neck will form its own naturally beautiful patina over time and handling. The Heritage neck is precision made to exacting tolerances to ensure consistency and hand engraved.

Each neck includes a complimentary in house custom fitting to your horn. If you wish to order a neck to try at home please select your saxophone type and follow up by contacting me for additional fitting information. We have machined custom fitting dies that allow us to size any neck to the listed makes and models below before it is shipped out to you.

'The flexibility of this neck helps tighten up the low end of the horn and evens out the instrument in a beautiful way. Great job Jack!' - JEFF COFFIN (The Mu’Tet, Dave Mathews Band)

The Heritage Tenor Neck has really opened up my sound and it’s allowed me to explore more tonal colors in my playing. The response is very unique, I feel that my air flows very freely allowing the upper and lower registers to speak with incredible clarity. Thanks Jack’ -CHRIS BULLOCK (Snarky Puppy)

'The Heritage neck has a bigger, more robust and resonant sound than my original vintage Selmer VI neck. On top of that it's amazingly free blowing!!' -MIKE TUCKER (Arturo Sandoval, Berklee School of Music Professor)
