You can lower the pitch some by putting a wood or plastic rod in the bore.
This reduces the effective bore diameter. Maybe try an eighth-inch dowel (or
3 or 4 mm) as a wild guess for a starting point. People have tried to turn a
Bb clarinet into an A clarinet this way, with not very good results, but
maybe it would work well for just 5 Hz. It'll take some experimenting. You
could, for example, tie or glue some sewing thread to a rod and run the
thread out between the barrel and mouthpiece to hold it in place. Some
people have used string instead of a rod, but I think a rigid material is
better (and also disproves the claims that a string works by slowing the
speed of sound within the string).

Hello Everyone

With regards to playing at 435, I play and record with a church pipe organ
that is also at 435. It is near impossible to play in tune with it, even
when I pull out past the cork. Any suggestions?

Kind regards
