Thanks for the detailed reply, Chris! Regrettably, I do not have the metalworking skills to rebuild the trill key as you suggest. Perhaps one day I will pay one of the excellent woodwind technicians we have here in Montréal to do it for me. Yes I noticed the Rube Goldberg-esque mechanism regulating the octave vents -- I have seen it on other instruments, and find it frustrating to adjust. I did not see the B-C link, however, which is a feature I appreciate very much. Thank you for pointing it out. The amateur orchestra I belong to is rather unlikely to tackle Mahler any time soon, but if we ever do, it is good to know that my English horn will be up to the task (even if I'm not)!
