Max Keilwerth-made Globemaster Luxus

I had the opportunity to play and photograph a full-pearl, Globemaster Luxus that was sent to my tech's shop for repairs.

This horn had double floating levers. The 2nd came from the high F key. I have never seen anything like it before, and the experienced techs I know--both mine, and others--hadn't either.

I wrote about the horn yesterday on my website. Check out the article and full horn pics there.

In the meantime, here's a teaser....

Great article...ingenious little device, that palm F lever. It'll be interesting to see if in fact correcting intonation was its purpose.

Doesn't look like Max could have thrown anything else on that horn...LOL.
