First off, I match my C2 to a D on the piano. However when I play the alternate fingering of the C2 (the C1 fingering with the addition of the octave key), I get close to a D#/Eb. Does anyone know what might be causing this?
EDIT: My bad, I was supposed to match it with the D#/Eb. Nevermind
Do you have your vintage Conn's alternate forked Eb key permanently closed (via reversed spring or cork) or still in working condition?
After looking at a picture of Lester Young's New Wonder series I tenor, I noticed he had his fixed closed. I was surprised by this and just figured he would...
