Kevin and Nick -

The Festival is not the same as the RC. The Festival and the RC bores in the upper joint are definitely not the same as the R-13 bore, and the hole placement (particularly the register key) is also different. I suspect that the lower joint bore is also somewhat different to accommodate the changed in the bell. I wouldn't count on an R-13 playing in tune with an RC bell. It's certainly worth the experiment, but if you have to buy one, it's well over $100. Better to find someone who has an RC or Festival and try the bell on your R-13. Take a tuner.

Best regards.

Ken Shaw
