V1 neck vs. G3 etc.

By

Comments about Yamaha V1 Series Alto Saxophone Neck:

This review is a comparison of V1 neck with the G3, and an actual Mark VI neck, on my 82Z alto. Standard lacquer on all. I need to give a little history: I got my 82Z back in 2007, when they were relatively newish. When I contacted Yamaha about some serious intonation problems, they offered to replace the provided G1 neck with the new G3x neck for free (this was the shortly before the G3 became generally available, thus the "x". Also I'm sure the newer G1 necks have better intonation). The G3 greatly reduced the intonation problems. It also produced a less brilliant sound, which was ok with me as the G1 was very bright. I was pretty happy with this over the years but I when I saw that they came out with a new neck, and cleverly called it a "V1" (hinting at "Mark VI"), I became curious. I have a nice '59 Mark VI and tried that neck on the Yamaha, and it fit just fine. With the Mark VI neck the Yamaha felt a little more like the Selmer, a similiar resistance and response. But, not surprisingly, the intonation was all over the map. So I went for Yamaha's new offering. I like the new neck better than the G3, though the G3 is certainly "good". Some of the key differences are: Clearer palm key notes (D~F), which seemed a bit "stuffy" on the G3. Altissimos are easier, at least for me (I gather not all have the same result). Intonation is somewhat better, especially up high. Unfortunately open C# is still flat. (You still have to deal with that curse). A generally sweeter and expressive sound. The G3 is kind of buttoned up or inflexible (if that description works). And does it "feel" more like the Mark VI neck on the Yamaha? Well, Yes! Please understand that I'm NOT saying this neck will make your Yamaha "sound like a Mark VI". I'm just saying that the response of the horn is more in that direction than with the G3. At least in my hands that is. I hope this info is of some use.

Comments about Yamaha V1 Series Alto Saxophone Neck:

For two years, I have been playing on the G1 neck that came with my Custom EX alto. I just received my V1 and am very pleased with it. The differences between the V1 and the G1 are not subtle. With the V1, tone quality is clear, centered, and resonant. Response is consistent from bottom to top. The high register is much more open with the V1. Altissimo is much easier to produce and control compared to the G1. There are some minor differences in tuning compared to the G1, but nothing of concern. In short, I am glad I purchased the V1 and am impressed with the results I am getting. Five Stars! Equipment: Yamaha 875EX Custom alto, Vandoren Optimum AL3, Optimum ligature

Comments about Yamaha V1 Series Alto Saxophone Neck:

I like it because it meets everything in the description except intonnation. Some notes come so sharp that the can be the next note except flat. This happens with high c to altissimo f sharp. The other altissimo notes are fine
