I watched a Youtube instructional video...I do not do well with printed instructions.
I used saxophone pad & cork glue that I had on hand. (can be used hot or cold). After the glue set, I heated it with a hot air blower. This allows the glue to flow and fill spaces evenly.
Now I have a professional looking neck cork,
and , I did not have to travel to a sax tech, and I have surplus material for another time.
I went on Amazon, found this, and now, I couldn't be more glad. The shipping was decently quick, and for just $12, this is a steal.
If there's one thing that you'll take from this review - don't be scared to use this. I don't do much DIY, and, albeit with a bit of worry, it turned out perfect. The video wasn't very useful, but the included instructions are clear and straightforward.
I took my old cork and cut the new one to the same length. I followed the instructions and glued it on. I was definitely worried when I saw a few crack in it, even though some of the other reviews mentioned the same thing.
However, once the glue had cured, I had to sand it down enough that the cracks disappeared and I ended with a very smooth, professional out of the factory-looking cork.
The included cork grease is nice, but it has a very pungent, yucky-smell in my opinion, so I'll probably end up tossing it. Also, you'll probably also end up tossing the brush, as the contact cement makes it all stick together
I saved an easy $28. Very happy with the results. If you want a quick, cheap, beautiful cork replacement, get this.
You may be better off getting this kit but buying a better cork to put on your sax because this one felt cheap.
Also you could buy the contact cement and cork and use what you have at home to perform the rest of the replacement
I did this without sandpaper and I got the mouthpiece on by smashing in the cork to make it thinner, applying cork grease, and forcing the mouth piece on.. eventually the cork will get to a point where the mouthpiece slides on easily and there was no need for hours of sanding.
I recommend this kit if you know for sure you can pull it off! If you fail you'll have to buy more cork and more waiting without your saxophone until the cork ships.
