 Re: Retrofitting a left C#

That's doable - it's a case of making and fitting special pillars to mount the combined LH F/C# key to, then adding the link to the C# touchpiece. And it should fit in the case as it's all above the existing feather key barrel instead of next to it.

It does however place the LH C# touch over to the left (as you're playing), but that's where it is on saxes and clarinets anyway and also on older oboes like Leon Goossens' 1907 Loree.
