Carbon Fiber Necks?

Found this interesting.

“Custom-made high-quality saxophone necks, made of top quality carbon fiber and water-resistant epoxy resin coated with ultraviolet-light-resistant polyurethane, are designed by musician/engineer Antoine Lefebvre and Zen Composites. For any wind instrument, composite materials may replace copper to produce stiffer, lighter and shock resistant bodies, which may be particularly attractive for large brass winds and saxophones”

Except that saxophone necks aren’t made of copper…..I don’t think. Interesting stuff though. Wonder if it sounds better than the plastic saxophones….
