    Will the neck enhancer help my neck, which tends to become a little stiff after playing for four hours?

    Well according to steve, just rub some tooth paste around the inside of the top of the sax, and then attach the neck and then swing the neck round in a circle several times, problem ah sorted.I’m not too sure about the smelly products he sells that attract hippies while you play the sax.

    just dont swing the neck around too fast, or your sax might fly away!

    the only thing helping your neck is the chest strap rig, like a baby holder,

    My instructor put his metal otto link mouthpiece on my saxophone awhile back and it compressed my cork farther than what my jody jazz does. I soaked it and blew it with the hair dryer and the cork did expand back out. Worked like a charm GOOD advice. Nice tight fit for my jody jazz now. Still going to use the Dr. Slick cork treatment on it.
