Here are the standard tenon dimensions:

Eb extension - socket = .9150" or 22.30mm

I will not be attending the Klafest this year or the University of Oklahoma
conference. I am almost always playing with the SF Opera during the month of

I do not sell directly, but most of my dealers can get any of my products.
WW&BW has done a great job of distributing my products, but for some reason
they do not carry my extension. MUNCY WINDS is very good about keeping all

extensions in stock WRIGHT MUSIC in Port Washington, NY has done a lot of
work with the musicians of NYC. HOWARTH of LONDON is currently my most
consistent European distributor.
