-  Mark Maximum: See Physical Description.
-  This instrument has some interesting, apparently maker, mistakes. Opposite the embouchure hole, the inner wall has a slight hole, possibly an accident from the original pilot drill. The foot joint reveals problems in drilling the pin holes for all of the key blocks. The lower key block pin for the C# key is visibly not perpendicular.
