Try www.saxophones.co.uk - they did have one I believe. There are not nearly so many around, but I found the plate not only made the horn feel better, but it seemed to sound better too. I have a T901S which I got second hand and it is in a whole different league than the lacquer one, and I found this true in the A901 and A991 which I tried as well.

Well I sent in a price quote to chuck levins and the black lacquer 991 was at a 2295 price tag while the silver 991 was at 2495 price(the same as the price of a 992)
