The latest and most significant development is the new neck. TM experimented with annealing necks to improve tuning, but found that some of the tone quality was lost in translation. These new necks are the best of both worlds! The same complex tone is there, but now with a hint of resistance and increased focus of sound. And, we can confidently say that this is the best-tuning neck on the modern market. These fantastic tenors are played and endorsed by Doug Lawrence, lead tenor with the Count Basie Orchestra (http://www.douglawrencejazz.com/)
Because of the true rolled tone holes, these tenors sub-tone with very little effort and the response is lightning-quick through all registers.
Each finish has its own sonic signature. Available in Cognac lacquer, Matte, and Unlacquered, Silver Plate and Gold Plate (Silver and Gold are by special order). Comes with contoured case.
At Sax Alley we are honored to have been chosen, as one of a very few dealers, by Tenor Madness to sell their fine saxophones!
Comments from purchasers of the TM Custom Tenor
My experience with new saxophone was fantastic…well packed for delivery. Everything was beautiful and shiny. My first notes were pure heaven as I knew this was the perfect saxophone for me.
