Hi!

This morning when I start warm up for practice, the low Bb B and C# suddenly cannot voice out properly, it sound kinda like the overtones but not exactly is, just some weird tone. It's a Martin Tenor, should be a committe.

From low C to high F is all normal.

I plan to take it to tech to have it check, but curious to know what could have been the issue. Any idea?

Thanks for your help.

Thanks! Found it. The G# is still slightly open when pressed together with the right hand DEF keys.

Likely your low C or C# is leaking.
If certain notes do not respond, then the leak that is responsible is almost always considerably further up the instrument, as it turned out to be in this case.
