I don't care to hear a high F# on most sops. If I played a Mk VI with that key and the horn sounded good, I wouldn't care. If it played well and didn't have the high F#, the lack of that key would not prevent me from buying it.For a vintage Mark VI soprano, which one would you choose, with or without high F# key?
I'll admit, it was tough. Until I got a more open mouthpiece.what does it matter -you cant get that note to speak anyway
