Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended!” – Joseph Lulloff: Professor of Saxophone at Michigan State University and a member of Capital Saxophone Quartet

It is truly amazing the difference the CBRW makes to my Instrument! I recommend the Ergo Neck screws and the CBRW to all of my students!” – Timothy McAllister: Professor of Saxophone at The University of Michigan and a member of the Prism Quartet

“This is a very interesting product! The CBRW gives me a greater confidence in my instruments lower range through a sense of enhanced stability while maintaining other qualities which I like in how my instrument sounds and feels!” – Otis Murphy: Professor of saxophone at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music

“I feel that the added weight at this crucial connection of the instrument between the body and the bell seems to balance the tone of the instrument as I make the ascent to the lower register. I have been using the CBRW for about a month now and it has become a part of my instrument. I have no interest in returning to playing without it. Thank you for this, I always appreciate your efforts to help players.” – Donald Sinta: Professor of Saxophone Emeritus, University of Michigan
