Description

From Jack Finucane, owner and repair technician at Boston Sax Shop:

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 which have higher neck angles. 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 adjusting neck angles, 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. Due to its higher neck angle It also gives the feeling of blowing more downward into the horn which decreases resistance. I find the Heritage neck 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!

Each bare brass 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 are individually hand engraved.

From owner Jack Finucane:

As saxophone players, we know it’s all about the little things. The details that go unnoticed by almost everyone else. Maybe it’s that extra touch of style, or a thoughtful upgrade in the quality of a single part that’s only tangible to you, but that’s what separates a good product from a great one. At Boston Sax Shop we care about those details and strive to solve problems with each design. We rely on the feedback of the world’s top performing artists and are proud to have many of them as brand ambassadors. For us, it’s about the joy of creating the things we’ve always wanted to see available on the market and holding quality as our highest ideal.
