Subj: Re: [kl] Pinky key improvements?
Date: Sat, 11 May 2002 10:35:54 -0400

Hello Walter,

I regularly do custom key modifications and make special "helper" keys. Since
we all have different fingers and hand/nerve issues there is no "one size
fits all" solution.

Modifications can be as simple as shortening/lengthening a single key all the
way to new tone holes and mechanisms in extreme situations. (loss of a
finger, etc.)

It is amazing how much a player's technical fluidity can improve when a
clarinet "fits." There are a number of players on the list that I have done
modification work for, perhaps they would be kind enough to share there

In the next week or so I will add pictures to our website of several key

With Regards,

Morrie Backun
