 Mazzeo Mechanism Video ...
Author: Chris P

Can someone either make a video or if they know of one in existence, can they post a link to it as I'm trying to get my head around how it works.

http://folkmusic123.com/images/Clarinets/selmer_10_mazzeo_2.jpg

What I can see (on the above photo of a 10S Mazzeo model) is there's an adjusting screw on the LH2 ring key that opens the Bb vent when the thumb is off the thumbplate, but what I can't understand that with such a solid linkage, why isn't the Bb vent being forced open or the thumbplate and LH1 ring key being forced up when LH2 or the RH ring keys are held down?

This is what I can see - the Bb vent is sprung closed and is also held down by the rocker that links the Bb vent pad cup to the overlever from LH1/thumbplate. When the left thumb is off the thumbplate, the Bb vent is then opened as soon as the LH2 and RH ring keys are held down.

Is there some kind of flexible link in this mechanism I'm not seeing? This is why I'd like to see a video of it working.

Chris.
