Here is just an aside on the silver vs. nickel keys.......
My clarinet has nickel keys. If i had the money I would get them
silver plated. This would not be done because the silver looks prettier
I would do this because my fingers tend to slide around on the nickel
keys. It is just a more slippery metal (nickel). I like the feel
of the silver keys, since my fingers don't slide all over.
Of course other people will have different ideas about this. I
know that everybodies body pH is different and reacts differently to the
Like I said, it's just an aside. You can take it or leave it....
