Hello everyone!

I have a somewhat unusual question (I believe) for all the techs on here.

Is it possible to add a high E key to a mark vi 'nino? I have sent an email to the guys at tenor madness, and just wanted other opinions, also.

Thanks!

I don't play the 'nino, my professor is the one playing it. I will pass it along to him!

The dogs in the neighborhood say "Please, no."

Just guessing, but maybe when adding a new hole they would solder one instead of drawing it...? The size and location I guess the best would be copying from the most similar model with that key you can find and hope.

With that, it would probably be more along the lines of measure many times, and decide not to drill. ;)

Thanks for the replies everyone, I have forwarded all of the information along to my professor.

Depends how much of a treasured possesion it is, but he could mill a vertical slot in on the body then fabricate a plate with a tone hole and try it in various positions along the slot. Once the optimal position was arrived at the plate tone hole would be soldered on and a suitable key added. With a competent tech shouldn't be impossible to acheive a reasonable looking job.
