Hi, Can anyone help me, I have just bought a Keilwerth SX90 sop and I love it, been looking for a soprano that feels right and this is the one for me. the problem I have is I have discovered a foreign body lodged in the bore near the mouthpiece end of the sax, it is a flat piece of hard material that does not block the air flow but sits in the middle of the bore splitting the air flow, could this be some sort of modification or could it be a repair of some sort although there is no evidence on the exterior of the horn. I fear trying to take it out if it is doingsomething useful but i have never come across anything like it before. Can anyone advise

My favorite so far was a Florida Link tenor piece lodged inside a Buescher True Tone alto I bought off of eBay for parts. My least favorite was the exploded tub of vasoline in the bow of some guys tenor- yuck. I hardly ever turn away horns, but I wasn't going near whatever that was.

I'm also interested to hear how the horn plays now vs. before.
