“In the past 35 years as a touring artist newly made instruments in my opinion never met the quality of the great old instruments. Therefore I have never before endorsed newly made necks or saxophones.Yuri HoningMulti awarded saxophonist and composer
This time it’s different. This superbly handmade neck by Friso Heidinga has surpassed my expectations in every way. Protecting the unique frequenties that a Selmer SBA saxophone produces and at the same time adding way more dynamic range. Being a former Mark VI player for many years I was relieved to discover that the machine gun qualities of a good Mark VI now applies as well for my beloved SBA. I would seriously recommend this Heidinga neck to all professional players in the international field.”

I was able to change the neck this neck without a rag. It has better response, intonation, and evenness than old original SBA neck does. I recommend the Heidinga neck for all vintage-horn guys!!”
