I'd be curious to know if the valve was positioned before or after the main tuning slide. The fact that it was an F, with a smaller bore to start with, might account for the ability to place the 5th later in the overall tube. I bet the added 5th is a real godsend for an Alex F. Great sound but the intonation headaches are legendary so the 5th would be a very useful addition.
