Description

A custom-made premium neck from P Mauriat, designed in conjunction with Kirk Whalum

Upgrade your tenor sax set-up and add more power, richness, quicker response, and greater projection.  Not only does this neck fit on P Mauriat horns but it works extremely well on Yanagisawa, Yamaha, and Selmer saxophones as well.*

Complete with a silver plated finish and designed with unique dual bracing for extra resonance, the Kirk Whalum neck has an eye-catching look.

Many sax players often focus their efforts on finding the perfect mouthpiece, but more often than not the consideration of finding the perfect neck is something that is not on our radar.  Why not?  Because it is assumed that the manufacturer's neck on your sax is doing everything you need it to - but this may not be the case.  Secondary to finding the right mouthpiece, the neck is the next most important thing in the chain, and often those really great horns out there are great because they have a great neck.  Consider trying this new neck on your set-up and see what difference it could make for you!

"The silver plated P Mauriat tenor neck with bracing is the freest blowing tenor neck I've ever played.  The openness of the player's throat is then enhanced and supported by this incredible, carefully crafted neck.  The P Mauriat artisans went out of their way to give me exactly what I needed. I am extremely happy with this neck."....Kirk Whalum

Staff review

I literally couldn't believe it when I put this neck on after having played a 66RUL with the standard neck.  The instrument TRANSFORMED into something else!  I've never experienced a neck doing this before.  The immediate extra power, richness, brightness, and free-blowing qualities were simply extraordinary.  I can see why Kirk is so made up with this neck.  The sound is already great on all P Mauriat tenors, but this neck just takes the sound to the next level!
