Neck Leaks are a common problem on saxophones and it’s no surprise that even a small leak at the neck will have a dramatic effect on the performance of the instrument. What is surprising is just how often the issue of neck leaks is overlooked by technicians altogether. As with any woodwind or brasswind, a leak at the top of the instrument affects everything below so the neck area warrants careful inspection every time and we’ve developed the JLSmith Sax Neck Leak Isolators specifically to make this a fast, easy operation.
Individually sized for alto or tenor horns, Sax Neck Leak Isolators use an expanding ring to seal the body below the neck tenon. The neck fits over the tool and suction is checked with the neck installed. These tools are easy, fast and extremely efficient to use.
