    Thumbs up C.E. Winds has done it again!

    I just received a copper neck from C.E. Winds and it has changed my SA80II tenor into the horn I have been dreaming of.

    This is the best sounding, easiest playing neck I have tried so far and will now be my "go to" neck for awhile.

    I now have the original neck, selmer sterling, and now the CE Winds copper neck.

    Anybody interested in a Sterling Silver Selmer U.S.A. ?

    BTW, the Copper neck only cost me $75 plus shipping. YEAH YOU READ IT CORRECTLY.

    Not tried their necks, but I've got a CE Winds metal sop MP and I'm well impressed with it.

    I tried the "Silver Shocka" on my tenor but was not what I expected but overall great looking piece.

    Thumbs up Re: C.E. Winds has done it again!

    I played a 2 1/2 hour three set show last night with this neck, and have to say that it was consistently in tune, free blowing, and gave my SA80II a spread tone that I never expected to get from this horn.

    I can fully recommend the Alpha series copper neck, and am planning to purchase the Omega series crook next.

    Funny to see this thread revived but proof that some people actually use the search function.

    I could not find much difference in tone or in the build quality of the USA neck or the stock Paris neck when I played those on that SA80II. Both were stuffy, and played flat with tons of resistance. I attribute it to the horn since when played with the generic chinese made neck the sound opened up. However the neck, horn, and selmer envy are long gone.
