the leadpipe is shaped like a cruved neck for easy play. and is held in place with a clamp tightened with a screw.the instrument is tunded by lengthening or shortening the leadpipe.

this valve can be tuned either to f#, or to f. it can therefore be used to replace either the 2+3 or 1+3 valve fingerings for improved intonation

e. muted bell

this bell has a copper built in non removeable mute permanently attached mute. so all notes played through this bell have a soft ,metallic quality. there is also a sound effect open and close on top of mute attachment, can create an even softer muted quality.
