I've lost track of who asked the original question about subtones on the
notes directly above the staff. In previous discussions of this problem,
the suggestion was made that one possible cause could be that the register
key opens too far. I've heard the suggestion that the register key
should open to about the thickness of a nickel coin, roughly 1/16 inch or
1.5 mm.

I had the subtone problem on my Eb soprano and greatly reduced the severity
by minimizing the opening of the register key.
