Looking forward to it, Brendan! For now it seems that halfvalving with windsavers is the simplest way to achieve missing notes.🙄

Update: windsavers from www.deesfti.com.
I have tested these for a week now on my halfvalved Soloist Pro 12 and must say they are not prone to stick like other windsavers i have tried.( I often have plenty of saliva and often before a week or so either one or another windsaver from other manufacturer are glued by my saliva). However...these windsavers have other problems, at least to me. They produced buzz or flapping on medium volyme mainly on hole 2-5 and not on hole 6-12. Wrote to Don on deesfti and he suggested that i could have them little longer than usual and also trim the mylar back some. This did not help. I even tried to trim the top foil to see if that affected any stability to the windsaver but that only prolonged the time a little before the buzzing was back again. Don is now trying to redesign them and then send me some new to test again. I have not tried these windsavers on any chromatic.
