    Default WTB : Tenor neck for a Bundy Special (Keilwerth)

    Looking for a Bundy Special tenor neck. I guess a neck from another Keilwerth stencil should work too (King Tempo?).
    Maybe a roughly (ie cheap!) Keilwerth neck could work too.

    Tried many aftermarket necks, but because they are mostly selmer copies, they are very loose (beyond an expander!) and do not play in tune.

    Thank you!

    I meant to say "rough" not "roughly!

    An 'Armstrong' neck should be compatible. some of the contemporary Keilwerth necks are ROC made and have Selmer/Yamaha/ size tenons.
    'MikeyB' on here who's in Devon will make a tenon for you if you get stuck.

    Thanks Bopity, unfortunately after trying many necks (yamaha, selmer, saxgourmet, Gwinds, etc) it is not just the tenon, they just sound off!
    The only neck which works well and fits perfectly is from a newish Borgani! However these are too expensive for this sax!
    Cheers,
    M.

    The neck from my Phil Barone Vintage fits nicely on my Bundy Special (it's too big to fit on a Yamaha). It sounds ok but not as good as the stock neck. You would probably do better with another older Keilwerth neck. My Bundy Special neck sounds great on my friend's Couf Superba.

    Thanks Michael, I'd love to try a keilwerth neck (if not the original neck!). It's quite surprising that with so many models/stencils Keilwerth made over the years, there don't seem to be many necks coming up for sale. I even found a D&J neck, but no Keilwerth!

    Cheers and do let me know if you come across something that might work!

    Sorry Michael last thing: does the Barone play in tune on your Bundy? That's my main priority!

    The Barone neck played in tune but didn't have the fat sound that the stock neck has. Also, I believe the necks that Phil sells are Selmer sized - unlike the bigger one that came with my horn.
