OK. I know there is no "easy" tasks when repairing leaks, but I have what seems to be a simple one. I've always taken my saxes to a tech, but I was just there (Thursday) and don't feel like going back today. Problem is I've never even attempted a fix and couldn't fathom where to start. In this case it's the final pad that closes when you play a low Bb on the tenor. The horn is a '23 New Wonder. I have a back-up so I'm willing to give it a go and if I fail, I can always take it in tomorrow. Is there available somewhere, or can someone really helpful provide a brief layman's tutorial on how to make a minor adjustment? I'm not trying to take work from any techs out there. I just play out 3-6 gigs a week during the summer and there's some travel involved. It'd be nice to know how to make "simple" adjustments...
