 Re: Ab-Bb trill using RH side trill key?

That's one of the fingerings that I believe to be less than accurate on that website.

I have seen and played on some older instruments (50 years ago) that had no G#/A trill key on the right, but in its place was a special Bb trill key that was connected to its own vent on the side of the instrument (very similar to a trill key on a clarinet).

The bottom-most fingering shown on the website is mislabeled "A," when it should read "Bb" because of the special key described above. I believe that the special Bb trill key was mostly on open-hole models.

In addition, I have never heard of adding any right hand keys when trilling Ab to Bb on a modern instrument. (upper-most fingering shown)
