    Remember: "Freedom" Fries.

    Actually, I had forgotten about the bent barrel for clarinets. I wonder how well they play and/or how good they feel.

    I think I found the horn in that ad on your website, but with more "standard" keyguards. Here's a Hess stencil made for Otto Riedl. And here's the eBay ad. Bidding is actually rather brisk,...

    Well, it's not terribly pretty -- unless you're into patina -- but it is interesting looking and I've never heard of the manufacturer. P Gautiť & Fils. Ebay ad.

    I start to wonder if the extra keys are there to solve a problem that doesn't exist. I had at least five horns that had G# trill keys, for instance. I don't remember using it that often.
