That's one of the better attempts I've heard.  That said, the difference in
attacks between the bent and unbent tones is noticeable, and becomes more
so with repetition.  I don't think it would work very well in concert
performance in front of classical music aficionados, though they might
enjoy the novelty of it.

I'd just tune the blow 3 reed up a whole step and be done with it. Some
things are easier than others.  Playing a note that's designed and built
into the instrument is generally one of the easier things.

Regards, Richard Hunter
