Saxophone Repair Topic: Patching a Neck Pickup Hole

Posted on 9 de octubre de 2020

Saxophone repairman Matt Stohrer of shows one way to cleanly patch a hole left from a neck pickup. Neck pickups were semi-commonly installed- by drilling a hole in the neck- in the 1970s and 1980s. Nowadays mics do the job pretty well, and most folks with a neck pickup installed would like to remove them since they can be prone to leakage, devalue the horn compared to a decently done patch, and (to some, including myself) look quite unsightly.

This is how I do it, and might not be the best way, but hopefully can provide you with more information on the subject than you had prior to watching.
