Easily Adaptable System with Gorgeously Versatile Sound

Tired of settling for tone you don’t love? Sweetwater has a solution for your saxophone-related problems: the Saxophone Modular Neck System from Warburton. This alto sax system gives you the power to changes necks, use different mouthpieces, and switch tones with ease. It works by providing you with an initiator, a tenon, and a premium neck. The initiator screws onto the mouthpiece side of the neck while the tenon screws onto the instrument — now you can use one neck with a variety of mouthpieces and bodies. With this system, you never have to worry about corks again! And with the included initiators, you can choose between three different internal shapes so you get the tone you want when you want it. Jazz, contemporary, classical — it’s all within reach with Warburton’s Saxophone Modular Neck System.

To put the tools of a superior neck system in your hands, Warburton has packed this box with a set of initiators, tenons, and a neck that’ll pump out superior tone performance after performance. Easily attached, the initiator screws onto the mouthpiece end of the neck and features rubber O-rings instead of a cork. The magic of the initiator happens with differing bore sizes and internal shapes that allow you to achieve a diverse range of tones. The tenon features a tapered design, precision machined for optimum performance and to eliminate misalignment issues. Lastly, the gorgeous satin-finished neck bares Warburton’s threaded mountings to securely connect to the initiators and tenons. Saxophonists at Sweetwater attest that this system’s tonal qualities and ease of use make it incredibly worthwhile.

Three included initiators to choose from

Each Warburton Modular Saxophone Neck System includes three initiators: with the alto set you receive the F47, CA48, and S48 models. The F47 exhibits a cylindrical 2/3 length before a flare. This shape provides you with a warm and flexible tone that produces prominent lows and an upper register that’s fluid and singing, which is ideal for jazz and classical. The CA48 offers a cylindrical 1/3 length to an arc that’s perfect for classical and the pit orchestra given its supreme tonal control over the entire range. It also supplies soft dynamics without the need to subtone in the lower register. Finally, the S48 struts a straight internal cylinder that is perfect for contemporary styles given its ability to keep highs, mids, and lows balanced and its refusal to break up even at loud volumes.
