TKS, Mike, yes, that was what I thot was Selmers "system", both Paris and USA, which still gives a V G clarion tonality and response, so a 2nd reg.vent wasn't needed. I've had 2 altos, each with the 2 vents plus a Bb tonehole, an old Pedler [given to my comm band] actuated, like a good bass cl, by the 3rd finger rt hand, D to E, and a Gerard [FR?] actuated like a sax, 3rd finger left hand [G to A]. As I recall, these mechs did improve their playabilities. IMHO, the lack of ?good? register venting can produce a "resistant" feeling with the larger cls, perhaps even with our sops?? Don

Thanx, Mark, Don
