    Hi,

    I joined the club just recently with tenor SN 439xxx, brass neck, and very Martin-like warm sound, but with more clarity. Great intonation!

    I have a question for you guys. Are all of your neck tenons straight? (I know that sounds obscene, but I'm talking literally. Sometimes a cigar IS really a cigar...) The neck checks out perfectly round, but on one side, visually it looks like it is not perfectly straight. Horn plays fine; I just wonder, does this affect its potential?

    Cheers, JT

    When the neck connection on my similar model was out of round/leaked, the problem notes were B1 and F#1. Fixing it corrected the problematic notes and made the entire horn come more alive.

    Got the neck tenon straightened out, and the horn does play better.

    BTW, if you're looking for a tech in the DFW area, Charles King at Ellis County Music Center is da bomb!

    I'm joining this club. I have a 370' series Super 20 Clevland Tenor w/ silver double socket neck that I will never, ever replace. The photo's show the band opening up for Blue Oyster Cult a couple years back. If I'm not mistaken, I'm playing "What Does it Take" on the bass bins.


    Since that date I have had the horn overhauled for the second time. The first time it was a basket case rescued from about 20 years of Junior high duty following a career in the Navy. (True) I had the remaining laquer revoved. No buffing. It's now got black roo pads and noyek resonators. The thing whispers, screams and everything else inbetween. LIke someonelse said before, it sounds great through a PA and records well. But, you guys know all that.

    Here's the horn and my ugly mug a bit closer:

    No I won't. It's time for something else. I've been playing this horn for almost 17 years.

    I am back in the club. Just got a 1949 Super 20 Serial #299xxx and this horn is a monster, it's like turning Godzilla loose on some unsuspecting city.

    Warp is a monster saxophonist. Therefore his horn is a monster horn, Super 20, LeBlanc System, X...pure logic...Rational(e), in fact.

    Thanks!

    @Bobsax: I play a Leblanc tenor. The model is called 'System'. It has an alternative tonehole and key setup, allowing for different fingerings for most notes. For example I can play Bb2 by pressing LH index and ringfinger, and Ab1 by fingering A plus RH middlefinger etc etc.
