Selmer has finally come out with a saxophone to rival the famed Mark VI, the new Reference saxophones. A large part of the success of these saxophones is the neck. We experimented with swapping reference 54 and 36 necks on other Selmer Tenors and were blown away by what we heard!!!
We've tried them on the Selmer Series III, Selmer Series II, Mark VI, and Super Balanced Action. Both necks open up the instrument which gernerates a more free blowing feel. The reference 36 neck is just a bit punchier than the reference 54 neck, while the reference 54 has has a slightly darker quality. To make for a perfect fit with your horn you may have to have the neck tenon slightly expanded or collapsed. This is a very simple thing to do and any local repair shop can do this for you in only a few minutes.
We can also silver plate your neck with either a brushed finish or a Burnished (shiny) finish if you want. Just select from the options above. ***NOTE: If you choose to silver plate the neck from the options above, this is a custom order, which can take between 1-3 months and which is then non-returnable.***
