 Re: Removing the top 3 trill keys?

Besides losing the A natural to B natural trill, the A natural to Bb trill, the Bb to C trill, the second side key from the bottom is part of your alternate throat F# (Gb).



Of course you are probably aware of that. You are correct about keys adding a lot of weight but any more permanent modification (filling holes using epoxy or super glue and African Blackwood dust) would pretty much destroy your resale value.


You might try florist's clay or that soft, gooey gray artist's pencil eraser stuff to fill the holes yourself (as a temporary yet more solid than tape option).


Personally I'd address the tendinitis with that bigass Kooiman thumb rest (metal one) or even a neck strap (my suggestion for a last resort before taking keys off).


But it's an interesting idea. Let us know if it works for you.
