  • Keywork extends to G3
  • Our “never stick” G# simply eliminates the problem
  • All needle springs are blued steel, flat springs are phosphor bronze
  • The upper stack speaker key gives much improved intonation to C3 - G3 and requires no additional springs or mechanism
  • Double arms on low C, low B, low Bb prevent leaks
  • The left hand thumb button is metal and domed
  • Then two necks are dimensionally identical but made from different metals: #1 is copper; #2 is gold brass and somewhat brighter in sound
  • The 3 ring strap hook accommodates players of different physical size for greater comfort
  • The key touches are abalone, and the extensive engraving is all hand cut……no horn has more engraving
  • The tenon interior is threaded, stabilizing the lower notes by creating a boundary layer at critical nodal points
  • The right hand thumb rest is simply the most comfortable in the world
  • The lower stack has a screw adjustable F# “helper"
  • The upper and lower stack keys are screw adjustable
