 E flat / A flat left pinky key retrofit
Author: ThatPerfectReed

Ok..here goes... : - )

Has anyone seen, or know of a repair tech who retrofits hardware on a Buffet R13, that allows the normally right pinky E flat / A flat key to ALSO be actuated with the left pinky?

I do appreciate that Buffet and other clarinet makers have such keys on some of their clarinets. Ridenour Clarinets indicated to me recently that they soon intend on making this an option.

And yes--to some extent I agree with any potential naysayers who say "suck it up and switch pinkies on the B / E keys, or for that matter, the C / F keys, midnote, to line yourself up for a right pinky E flat / A flat."

But I am also open minded to consider good technology that can make our already challenging instrument easier to play.

Thanks in advance--fellow clarineters!
