uses the extremes of the body octave vent... you mean the like second smallest pad right?Gordon (NZ) said:That D uses the extremes of the compromises of location and size of the body octave vent. Check that it is not partially blocked, and that the pad lifts at least a couple of mm. Make sure the neck vent is fully and securely closed.
jbtsax said:Two questions. What do you mean by grainy. I have never heard that term used to describe tone before, And, is this the alto that you repadded a while back?
I mean the SMALLEST pad on the body. The one that opens when you change from 1st octave G to second octave G.xsnoopyx said:... you mean the like second smallest pad right?
