dear oboists,
I recently acquired a Th Poppe (Dresden) English horn, serial #501. It has some unusual features -- at least, unusual for an amateur such as myself: low Bb/Eb, F-key with roller, and an odd key on the right side of the upper joint which appears to function like an old Triebert system-4-type Bb key. There is also a second key opened by the F-key, on the left side of the lower joint. (I am attaching some pictures to illustrate). Have any of you seen such an instrument before? Any idea when it was made? The side Bb and second F key are particularly baffling; could these have been added at the request of the player who placed the original order? Thanks in advance for any clues you could provide!
