Sometimes, the work the Brannens do on the horn automatically brings the
pitch back to A440 on those notes simply because the instrument was leaking
enough to raise pitch. However, they have told me in the past that they do
not do acoustical work that you have described.

However, after visiting with Francois Kloc on the phone this past week, I
understand that one of his best techs is now working at IMS (Boosey moved
its headquarters to California), and, since they sold you the horn, you
could probably have them adjust pitch as required.

Best wishes,
