Corry Bros Tone Tablet
THE TONE TABLET
HAND MADE IN ENGLAND
The Tone Tablet is the first of our Saxophone accessory products and has been created to optimise the tonal output of your saxophone. This simple, discreet and non intrusive tablet is inserted into the lyre hole on your saxophone neck tenon and simply held in place once the lyre screw is tightened.
When the Tone Tablet is in place you will be amazed at the difference in how your horn feels, responds and how the overall tone is improved. It will feel more centred and secure in all registers with a fuller, richer, purer sound that is more stable and even, giving you greater projection and richer overtones. Nothing is taken away from the horn and all your original neck screws or alternative neck screws can be used with this product.
It can then simply stay in place. Made from specially sourced Silver Bullion the material in our registered and protected design Tone Tablet has the same quality and working properties as Sterling Silver.
We know what you're thinking....how can this make such a difference?
The Tone Tablet allows neck tenon vibrations an easier path to travel, consequently changing the vibrational response of your saxophone.
Nobody knows your sound better than you, so try one. You'll hear and feel the difference for yourself. Below is some more factual information about the Tone Tablet with some quotes and reviews from professional players who have used the tablet.

QUOTES FROM THE PROS
"When Corry Bros asked me to try out their new Tone Tablet I’ll admit I had my reservations. A piece of kit that is so small and discreet (less than a cm in height) I couldn't imagine how it may affect my sound let alone improve it. Tightening it into the lyre screw void on my tenor I was soon proved very wrong. Right from the first note I blew my tone seemed more focused, centred with an improved resonance from bottom Bb and up into the altissimo register. Partly down to the perceptible improvement to the syllabance of my sound. I also felt a subtle enhancement in the feedback and response of my instrument. A confidence boosting element to the tone tablet, notes were more secure and the saxophone responded with a greater clarity of sound. Continuous A/B testing on sessions and shows proved it wasn't just a placebo effect and the tone tablet now has a permanent place in my setup on all of my saxes. Up until now I’ve only tried the sterling silver Tone Tablet but I look forward to trying the other materials currently under test with Jim and Paul. I feel this product is in no way a fix to a poor tone, for me it seems best to see it as an enhancement tool. This is a very subtle product from the Corry Bros that packs a punch far greater than its weight." - James Russell UK (Jamiroquai Saxophonist)
"The Corry Bros Tone Tablet is somewhat of a miracle. I never thought that a device so small could make such a big difference other than what my personal mouthpiece can do already. This half inch Tone Tablet does exactly what it says it does and more, it's amazing and I now won't perform without it. My saxophone sings more than it ever did, total perfection. This is where science and music unify and play in perfect harmony" Tony Kofi (award winning UK saxophonist)
"I do like the Tone Tablet. It always amazes me that something so small would make a difference" - Jerry Bergonzi
"This small masterpiece, discrete and easy to position is incredible! Beyond enriching the sound and bringing more harmonics, the transmission of highs notes (and altíssimo) is increased and the homogeneity of the instrument is incredible. THE indispensable object for your instrument. it will help you to improve your game and your sound, and the relationship between the registers is wonderfull. thanks a lot to the Corry Bros!" Baptiste Herbin (award winning French Virtuoso)
