Hi everyone! I've recently purchased an old Buescher True Tone Alto sax off eBay. For an old sax that I got for a low price, it plays great (the action is a bit slow but I think I'll be able to fix that by cleaning and roiling the rods). However, I have an extremely hard time getting out a low or high g, f, or f sharp. They'll usually just come out as a weird honk, and even when I do manage to get a good sound on those notes I'm unable to hold it for long. I've checked pads and a couple other things, but I just don't know what's causing those few notes to get messed up. If anyone here repairs saxophone or knows their way around one, I'd really appreciate some insight into what might be causing my problems. Thanks!
