Neckpipe Gold-plated brass
Body Lacquered brass
Bell Lacquered brass, hand-engraved
Mechanism High F-sharp, distinctive octave key, sway-free F-auxiliary and low C-sharp mechanism, contoured independent palm keys, double-action table keys, rib-mounted upper and lower stack posts, double-armed low B and C.

A-9935 Specifications:
Key: Eb
