Clarinets
Jumping G#/D# key solution
Older clarinets had the left-hand G#/D# key between the left-hand E/B and the left-hand C#/F#. This often caused problems when the G#/D# jumped uncontrollably if released too quickly.
L&P developed the new left-hand G#/D# key for Buffet in the late '80s which became the standard. We can transform your old system either to the new one or even better to the alternated C#/F# mechanism, which not just eliminates the problem completely but also allows a perfect switch from C# to Bb by only pressing the E/Bb down without needing to lift the F#/C# key.
