The newly updated ReedGeek Klangbogen set is the latest innovative product offering from ReedGeek, Inc. A beautifully crafted solid brass bow, the Klangbogen is a reed and overtone stabilizer which fits most saxophone makes and models and attaches to the seldom used music lyre screw holder. Initially conceived by German artisan and ReedGeek team member “Toko”, and ReedGeek perfected, the Klangbogen™ instantly increases output and depth of tone of the saxophone while stabilizing the extreme ranges of the horn enabling it to speak with clarity. Maximizing the air flow through the conical tube, Klangbogen improves the efficiency of a balanced reed by supporting and reducing air turbulence at the neck-tenon and palm keys that have historically suffered tremendous nodal disturbance. This enables the player to achieve a rich saxophone sound with great forward projection and point (focus) to the sound.
Distinct metallurgical finishes give various sound response and feel.
- Brushed Aerospace Matte: The most bell-like ring
- Marbled: The darkest, “woofiest” core, promotes that vintage sound
- High Polished Brass: Creates focus and “guts”
- Hand Polished Heavy Silver-Plate: Promotes clarity and highs
(includes one .16″ diameter silver resonance pin)
- Hand Polished 24kt. Gold Plate: Promotes a velvety richness to the sound
(includes one .16″ diameter gold resonance pin)
While designed to suspend away from the neck tenon, it can also be positioned touching the saxophone body/tenon. Each position will yield a different response and resonance.
