Well good Buddy,
I listened to all of your sound clips and
your K5LA has some major tuning issues
The notes each bell are intended to voice
are as follows:
#1 Bell D# (below middle A note on your Keyboard)
#2 Bell F#
#3a Bell G#
#4a Bell B
#5 Bell D# (above middle A note on your Keyboard)
the#1 Bell [Low D#] and the #5 bell [Hi D#] are not on key with each other and they need to be in harmony!
Usually its the #5 bell thats off -
that is sharp, voicing an E note instead of the D#.
The #2 K Bells usually voice a G note instead of the F#
again one note or step to sharp or high.
This condition is normal for most late production K horns.
The Factory Diecast molds are off causing these "off key" voicings on some bell numbers.
If you can take each bell off the bracket and compare by blowing them individually one at a time with the notes on your keyboard, you will hear what I've discribed above very clearly - especially if you "Play by Ear" as I do.
The Bells can be fixed by machining or shiming the nozzle bore area.
There are 2 Members (Craftsmen) on here that offer such services.
If you are happy with the voicing as it is,
then do nothing and enjoy.
I always tell people,
If it sounds good to you and you are satified,
then that is the main goal.
