    Default How to get Schuchts neck?

    Good day great SOTW pals,

    I am now highly falling in Ernie Watts's sound.

    and I am looking for the neck Ernie uses.

    The website is http://www.schuchtsaxtechnology.com/

    How can I get the model SST Neck TN1?

    Have you tried contacting the company?

    On another note, is there any sax product that Joe Lovano doesn't endorse?

    I already sent an e-mail to them, but there is no reply yet.

    How long has Ernie been playing this Schuchts neck? Was there a change in his sound?

    Mouthpieces tend to have a greater influence on the sound and response of a horn than the neck - do you already have a Barone-modified .165" Link and 1 1/2 Plasticover reeds?
    Go for The Tone,

    The first reason that I seek the neck is that I just want to give more warmness and flexibility to SX90R.

    Even if I can not be sure that I can reach to great Ernie‘s tone.

    and the design of the neck is cool

    Tino Schucht creates really incredible necks. They are very cool to play - easy, freeblowing, focused, with power etc.
    Ernie has a special tone/timbre that doesn't come from the neck. For example Bill Evans and Dave Liebman play equal necks from Tino and they sound so different.
    Give him a call, he is a fine person.

    Above all else Ernie is going to sound like like Ernie whatever neck he plays on ---you my friend will still sound like you--and is that a bad thing?
