 Marigaux King Marigaux 355 Bb

I just purchased an old Marigaux King Marigaux 355 Bb. I got it really cheap and purchased it without even seeing or trying it out so I was quite excited when it arrived.

Luckily it seems to be in really good shape. It was maintained many ago but have hardly been played after that . The wood is simply fantastic, so dense and highly polished in perfect condition . The keys also seem to be in great shape, no wear to be seen with the natural tarnish on the sliver that was easily removed. Very little play so the keys have absolutely not been worn down.

Noe to to the play test. Wow, so easy to play and amazing altisimo. I then measured the intonation and was blown away, simply amazing compared to other instruments I have access to including Buffet RC and also Ridenour Lyrique 576.

I have thee issues I would like to ask for help with.

1 the ring on the bell is rather loose as it rotates. It is not as loose that it might fall off or anything.

2 one of the rings on the barel is also loose. It is soo lose that it fall of so this is a real issue.

3 I mentioned wonderful intonation, but it is one exception. The clarion f# using then chromatic grip using two trill keys are very flat, about 20 cent. I can compensate wirh my embouchure, but I would like to know if it can be fixed. I have tried to remove the keys to check for any debris in the tone hole without success. I have also tried to play the f# without the keys and it is still rather flat.
