Yes, of the additional keys to the 17/6 Boehm clar, the alt. Ab/Eb lever is probably the most helpful, the "articulated C#/G#" makes some impossible trills possible as well as being useful when playing in many-sharp keys. The "fork Eb/Bb" helps out at times, and the low Eb [also a fair mid-staff Bb makes it possible to transpose music for an A onto a Bb. Altogether they constitute what is known as a full-Boehm clar [20/7 keys/rings]. Some pro makers offer various combinations prob. about $100 or more per addition. The drawbacks are a heavier, more complex clar re: adjustments and repair. I have two, and a "half-full Boehm"! Good luck, Don
