The neck, or gooseneck as it's sometimes called, is the part of the saxophone that connects the mouthpiece to the main body of the instrument. The design and bore of the neck can influence the overall tone of the instrument.
Saxophones generally come with a body, neck and mouthpiece as standard. However, as players progress on their instruments it is normal that they try and obtain an instrument to suit their own playing techniques and deliver their desired sound and, here at Yamaha Music London, you'll find a range of Yamaha saxophone necks suitable for you.
