First, if anyone here with a Buffet 1193 or 1183 model, and with the original register tube, can please try to play the phrase in the picture I attached in my former message and report the result. My experience shows with the original hole basically impossible, with the slightly bigger hole mostly possible.

Peter - I'm not going to gold plate them. Even if the air moves faster, the question is, whether it is something the player or listener can hear, and my guess is no. About your friend and the gold plated neck, I am guessing it is one of the very common cases of psychology stronger than reality....

Gordon - I am not 100% sure if he meant just the angle of the neck or also the angle of the mouthpiece to the mouth. From how he phrased it (but he wrote in French and it was translated to me) I think he meant just the neck angle, but possibly the combination of both. He made it clear they have made a lot of experiments with it.
I have an acoustics teacher who is really a genius in acoustics (master degree in math, physics, music education, music theory, musicology, and is a professor of acoustics). I'll ask her when I get the chance. We learned about some things that happen to sound waves becasue of the shape or material it travels through, but not nearly speciific enough to answer your question.
