I think that it will be a challenge to remove six feet of tapered tubing and still end up with an instrument with a logical and acoustically-sound taper in the overall bore.
Also, someone is in for at least a week of no sleep shortening the valve slide tubing to the correct "F" proportions with good alignment, appearance, and usability.
Does this instrument have the tone and response to warrant this investment in time and money?
Anyway, have fun and be prepared to think and learn.
