I have told them this. Withycombe tenor is my prime suspect.
They even offered to weigh Brough tenor to prove the fact, but I pointed out that they had better weigh the others too if they wanted proof!
Tuning wise - it should hopefully be possible to sharpen the 3rd sufficiently to bring them into a major key, whilst leaving the tenor untuned.
Best wishes,

My guess – if the 46.5” diameter at Brough is right – that it will be considerably lighter than supposed.  So is the claim really a sufficient argument against augmentation?  Chris PickfordE-mail pickford5040 at gmail.com
