Interesting that across Yamaha tenor models only the low 3 keys and middle C and set differently. I wonder whether that’s because they want them to sound/respond differently or whether it’s because their design differences require that. I suppose these are measured at the widest point of the keycup opening, from tonehole rim to pad surface?

I happen to have an all original early Mark VI, never played. I was just thinking of going through it, capture and document its key heights. Others must have done this before. Maybe we could start a spreadsheet comparing great sounding Mark VIs key heights against the original factory setup?
