Just purchased a used Cannonball Big Bell 107000 Tenor.
Wonderful instrument, only suffers from bad intonation caused by bad adjustment of key heights.
If anyone owns a Big Bell in original/factory adjustment I´d be really greatful if he could measure some of the original key heights for me:
Just find eg. a pencil with the same diameter as the distance between tonhole and pad and measure its diameter (cautiously insert). Just need one key of left hand stack (eg. B) one of right hand stack (eg. F), low C, and low Bb. Rough figures in mm are enough. Maybe several of you can post, so to get a final average ?

Thanks a lot for looking !

PS.. Posted similar topic in the tech section before, but couldn´t get this info.
