„I purchased a Heavy Heavy Steep Angle Gold BLASHAUS neck for my Selmer Privilege Bass Clarinet a few years ago and it has been a revelation.Frankly, it makes any stock neck feel and sound like a piece of tin. The increase in warmth and projection are amazing throughout the range of the instrument. Ease of articulation and improvement in response of the somewhat stuffy and stubborn notes at the top of the staff are all enhanced. The neck is 75% heavier than standard necks, rigidly braced, finished like satin inside and out and is just a work of art.
While warming up at the first Pacific Symphonic Wind Ensemble rehearsal I attended using the BLASHAUS neck, the Baritone Saxophonist behind me and our principal clarinetist both looked up in astonishment at the first notes from my now enhanced instrument. After playing some solos at the latest WASBE conference in San Jose, a conductor I had not worked with in over a year approached me, and said, “Chuck, have you changed something in your setup? There is something new in your sound!
Change your life today! Invest in a BLASHAUS Bass Clarinet neck!“
