I just bought a 1920 buescher tt curved soprano. It's only keyed up to Eb, obviously without any front f design. What do you have to do to play standard upper register palm keys (e-f)? Or do sound and saxophone mechanics not allow for this?

I have one of these horns myself. E3 is relatively easy to hit. Simply play Eb3 and add the G key (LH3). I get F3 by using the harmonic while fingering F2 (LH 1, 2, 3 RH 1). F#3 is not difficult, just finger G2 (LH 1, 2, 3) and add the F (RH 1) and side Bb. From there add side C to hit G3.

I appreciate it. I'll be sure to work on this when this beauty shows up on my doorstep.
