Clarnibass.

Don't worry! If we all start drilling the hardware store will be out of wax before we know it. (sorry Chris!) -:) My register hole is just fine. Close to (or maybe excatly) 4,5 mm as you described. Ascending legato phrases is no problem compared to descending phrases witch causes problems on all BC´s i think. Especially downward octave slurs.

You wrote:"I think the register hole on the Privilege neck is much smaller..."
It sounds to me like the tube hole needs to be smaller to compensate for the more curved angle, and maintaining a stable intonation at the same time.
I have tried several modified alto saxophone necks (with less curve) and they all went higher in pitch in the upper register.

It might take some time for the frenchmen to ship my new crook. When I get it, I will give you a full report on this thread.

I suggested the gold plating because it would make the air travel faster through the tube. This is probably absolute nonsense but flute players seems to like the effect of gold (or platinum) inside their tube.
Please keep up the good work. If the drill is gone, the thrill is gone.
