I will explain. Someone had a TH&C but didn't like the position of the bell keys. So that person patched up the tone holes and cut them Selmer style in the right side of the bell. For keys and mechanism they bought a MKVI. When the "work" was completed, the remainder of MKVI was left along with some TH&C keywork. Unfortunately, the latter was lost over time, so now all that is left is a MKVI that needs a bit of work.Martin Williams said:Im confused. Id REALLY like to know how that bel ended up like that; what the thinking was by whoever!
