    Looks like a knob to hold his hand off the horn in a comfy position whilst using the trigger & 4th.

    Best I can offer (a bit off topic) is when I say I play the euphonium, then they ask what is that?

    Those Bessons were a really nice-playing horn. For a comp design, there isn't much low-end stuffiness either.
