 Re: A/Bb conversion?

In fact, a long time back, there was something called a "corps de rechange" for clarinets to change keys. It replaced the upper joint with one of a different length (the upper hole spacing is more critial for intonation than the lower joints). Flutes still have these "corps de rechange".

The tuning using these "corps de rechange" is not very good since there have to be even more compromises. The tone hole spacing for two scales, even one only a half step apart, are different enough to require a different sized bore/tonehole spacing ratio to be reasonably correct.
