Saxophones Bauhaus Walstein Tenor Neck Size?

Hello,
I wonder if I could ask someone who has a Walstein tenor to measure the neck's tenon outside diameter and post here, please?

I have (another!) neckless tenor with no maker or serial number, which looks very similar to the Walsteins (shape of the right hand C/Eb keytouches, double arm low C/B/Bb...). Bought it as a junker, but in fact it's too good to use as spares! I have tried a Yamaha and Yani necks and these are too small for it.

Any help appreciated!
Cheers,
M.

John Packer is likely to be the same size. The biggest around. I had a similar issue.

Thank you both: I have measured the socket and it's 27.80 , so it sounds like either the Walstein or teh JP will do.

I will ask JP or Woodwind&Brass if they sell necks separately or if you know of anyone selling one, let me know.

Cheers,
M.

Thanks again, I have ordered a Walstein neck, it is excatly 27.8mm the JP is indeed 28mm (according to JP themselves!).

How interesting... few weeks ago I swapped a JP and a BW necks and they fit.
I think we will never find out the truth about Chinese saxophones.

Would it be worthwhile for those of us with the necessary equipment (not a plastic geometry set ruler) to accurately measure the tenon size of our own saxes to be included on a database for reference?

Interesting question... I have some issues about tolerance (my measurements were 0.05 mm accurate, and the tenon was oval) but when I tried a BW it fit (0.2 difference, in theory). AN my MkVI neck is larger than almost every MkVI neck.

Volume is another interesting point...
