Is the adjustable thumbrest on "the Martins" the same for alto and tenor? I just got a really nice alto and it is missing. Since I am in the flute building business and use factories in Elkhart, I was thinking of buying/borrowing one and making a run of them to sell as they seem to be hard to find.

It's the same for altos and tenors. The Magna has a silver thumbrest but same disign as the Committees. The Martin Baritone has a larger thumbrest.

the handcraft commitee I and II had more pointy thumbrests that were solid nickel (unlike the later committee models, with exception of the Magna). I discovered this when I fitted a later model silver plated committee thumbrest with my committee II sax. It didn't look quite like the original comm II, and brass showed through the silver plate.

I think I'm going off in a tangent...did I help at all?
