The resistance gained when playing it in T1 is probably what makes it speak easier.
My thought exactly! Less resistance in the outer positions relative to inner with a trigger.

Just spend some time working those intervals trying not to change your embouchure or horn position.

Re: BACH 42 Custom

IMHO, the axial flow valves are WAY too much valve for a tenor!

It would be similar to any Edwards with detachable bells, the only difference is the addition of the pillar.

Doing this would be cheaper than buying a new horn and taking the chance that it plays at least as well as what you have now.
