Many 1920 Martin Handcrafts do not have a high F key. Does anyone know of the alternate fingerings to get this note on these horns?

High f
by: Cosmo NC USA

Most horns reguardless of manufacture decade are capable of a fingered high f without use of the altissimo registure. Left hand finger high E and try your right-hand trill keys until you find a satisfactory pitch for f. E-mail me at woodw1nd33@yahoo.com if you got this info.
