The sliding neck weight gives players extra freedom to fine tune the tone and response of the saxophone
TheInter-change-a-bore Clarinet Barrel> was designed by Rheuben Allen and Bob Malone….This barrel has a very fast response especially in very soft playing, excellent tone color and is very stable unlike wood it does not change.
You can clearly see the harmonic key I designed at North Texas University over 40 years ago on Dan’s alto.. It is just above the B key… attached to the Front F key….. It makes getting to the Altissimo notes easier and improves technique. (Not that Dan needed any help) I also gold plated this saxophone and put new keys on the upper stack since Dan wore the pearls and keys out…
