Heritage Alto Neck - Silver Plated (Limited Stock Available)

650.00

The Heritage 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

Quotes:

”The Heritage alto neck allows for better intonation, easier altissimo, and adds upper partials to the sound that create a shimmer while maintaining a great core. So much fun to play!”
