twisper Posted March 13, 2012 Share Posted March 13, 2012 So close but so far. I got almost all of them lined up and headed towards their respective holes when G#/Bb fell. I buttoned it up anyway out of sheer exasperation. I wish I had the other style buttons that had the bottoms filled in. Oh well, F and A aren't what they are cracked up to be.... I notice also the buttons are uneven and some tend to go crooked. I assume that has something to do with the length of the cut tubing. I will have to revisit the tubing. Mark I remember that Bob Tedrow used to make parts to vastly improve (he called it 'hot rodding') the button action on these. You might send him an email and see if he still offers this service or can provide parts....maybe he has a bucketful of old buttons that he removed to install his improved ones.....worth a try, and he's quite an amiable chap. Good luck with the project! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
