Mazzeo System Selmer Signet, basic fingering

Greetings! I have recently acquired a Mazzeo Special by Selmer, Signet.
Any help you could provide with a fingering chart would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!

No fingering chart is necessary if you know the basic clarinet fingerings.

If the horn is in correct adjustment when you put down the right hand the third trill key will open. With that open all you do is open the a spatule A key and you have the throat Bb, the best one there is on the clarinet.
Any combination of fingers including either the right hand rings or the left hand will open the trill key, so it is a good way of playing the throat Bb.
The only problem is that you cannot put any fingers down when you are not playing Bb, meaning that anything down will again open the trill key, giving you some other note than the one you want.
Probably it will be much easier to do it with the clarinet in hand.
If the trill key doesn’t open, either there is a clutch on the right hand to keep it shut, or it needs to be repaired. The clutch is a small slide that goes up and down, up closes the third trill key, down allows it to open freely

Good luck, sherman
