We have been quite busy wi th the neck-making this year! We add ed the KB Sax alto necks to t he line up. Here is a Vangua rd hand hammered copper in a vinta ge (Selmer) lacquer next to a just-complet ed Redwood hand hammered copper ten or (hand polished).
Last step in neck making: Pl ay testing time 😄❤️❤️!!
3 necks heading to Colora do today!
To patina, or not to pati na, that is the question.
Our KB saxopho ne necks in raw brass/copper/bronze will natural ly pick up the patina over ti me. But if you want it to ha ve that shiny look like when it w as new, it is very easy to poli sh and shine it up.
See - "H ow to polish a sax neck" https://www.kbsax.com/saxophone-necks/sax-neck-models/how-to-polish-a-sax-neck/
Lacquer a nd plating are also options you c an consider adding onto your KB S ax neck.
