 RE: articulated C#-G#

Is it possible to borrow a Full-Boehm horn in your neighborhood?

The positioning of these keys on the Soprano is tight, I fumble across the articulated G# more often than I would care to admit on my Full-Boehm Buffets.

The modern versions or these are VERY expensive, so a retrofit might be cost effective.

However...

This is a one way trip, that may adversely effect the tone character of the horn
(could make it better, but best to prepare for the worst!), taking out the mods afterwards seems dicey.

I would poll John Butler and Gordon (NZ) along with Jimmy Yan to see what they think about the surgery.

I saw a web-page devoted to a Basset horn retrofit that might be up your alley.

If I can find the site, I'll post it later (lotsa thumb Gizmos on the horn, no thumbrest and a necessary thumbrest); this incorporated many of the features you describe in an elegant package.
