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.
