Nothing more but curiousity..but does your MKVI tenor have a perfectly round bell to body ring,or is it somewhat oval or oblong?
I've seen perfectly round but also oblong oval.
For what it's worth.....educate me someone..

They're suppost to be round, if oval or any other shape then somewhere along the line the horn took a pretty good hit to the bell which compressed/distorted the bell to body ring.

If you ever find a sax lik this be sure to take a look at the body for a bend. The ring on the brace was ment for strength, so if it got hit hard enough to warp that ring, the body may have taken some damage too.

Hi Jim. I second the comment TenTenTooter's made. The brace/ring should be round. If not, the horn took a serious fall or bump. Have a good tech look it over to check against a structual damage to the body, bow or bell.
