 Re: Selecting a Shorter Barrel

It sounds more of a compromise than anything in they're most likely aiming to put some German characteristics into an instrument with a French bore instead of going down the reform Boehm or full-on German/Oehler system route to give them much wider appeal as any French style mouthpiece can be used with them instead of a specific German type.

I haven't had a chance to look at a Signature in detail as the one that came in for emergency crack repair at the end of 2019 was done with the owner present who brought it to me immediately before a concert with hardly any time to spare. The one thing I did notice on it were the top joint toneholes which were mostly bushed - even the speaker tube countersink was bushed!

One thing I definitely don't like with recent Selmers is how they spring the throat G# key with the spring in the threaded pillar meaning the bias of the spring will loosen the pillar, turning it anticlockwise instead of clockwise. Why they did that is anyone's guess - they should've fitted an anchored pillar if they decided to do that.

Chris.
