Does such a horn exist, vintage or modern? It's becoming clear that VI ergonomics just aren't working for me anymore, and a lighter horn would be less of a strain on my bad neck. Going to check a VII today (I know - it's probably heavier than my VI), but I'm actually thinking that these 'concave' key pearls are also a problem - noticed during Friday's long, hard gig that I'm hitting the uncomfortable edges of the pearls all the way down near the first joint of my fingertips. And from playing my 6M alto, I know that concave key touches are not necessary for me...
