Wood & Winds is proud to present Magnetones (Patent Pending).

Imagine being able to change the core of your saxophones sound on a whim - without an overhaul every time you want to make a change. Magnetones opens new versatility in the area of saxophone tone control.

Magnetones is the revolutionary modular resonator system. After 4 years of development, Mike Borkovic of Wood & Winds presents a breakthrough in tone customization. With the Magnetones upgrade, you can easily experiment with shape, size, and material to take control of the core of your tone and build your sound!

Magnetones also gives you the freedom to hear it for yourself. So far, players have been relying on other players, techs, and manufacturers to recommend resonators for them - but not everyone has the same tone concept. During an overhaul you only get one shot at your choice, and anything experimental feels like a risk, but for all the fine details we explore in necks, mouthpieces, reeds, ligatures, and more - maybe it's time we take a real shot at refining the bore of our instrument and really see what resonators do?

Now within two minutes you can completely change your setup -

  • Size: Standard, Oversized, Undersized
  • Material: Plastic, Metal
  • Shape: Domed, Flat, Seamless, Riveted, Noyek/Maestro
  • Plating: None, Copper, Silver, Gold
  • Custom: 3D printed resos, non-traditional shapes, resonators for "prepared saxophone" contemporary compositions
  • All: And any combination of the above

Besides just experimenting with your sound, you can cater your setup to the gig the way you do with a mouthpiece and neck. eg. Standard plastic for your legit setup, oversized metal resos for pop/jazz, and even prepared resonators for contemporary players.

And besides all of this great stuff - all of these resonators are reusable! Trade with a friend and try their resonator setup to see if they are onto something that will work for you.

For new customers looking to have Magnetones installed on their instrument:

  1. You must have your instrument overhauled to install these
  2. Only technicians can purchase the magnets for behind the pads, so you must ask your tech to contact me at mike@magnetones.com. Not all techs will be prepared to do this, so we want to roll this out gently to address technical questions early.
  3. You may purchase magnetized resonators from me directly.
