hi guys,
last night i made a leak light( just a halogen torch bulb attached to a long piece of cable with the batteries at the other end). i have been playing for twenty years and it never occurred to me that i could find and fix my own leaks. anyway i stuck my device into the tenor and before long i found four leaks, these leaks were very easy to fix and mostly due to old swollen felts or just simple adjustments. My old mk vi sings now i can feel it resonating in my hands and made the horn a pleasure to play again. the leaks were almost imperceptible but now i have fixed them i've learned a very valuable lesson, from now on if the horn gets a bit stuffy i will get the leak light out.
try it...paul ;)

Rope lights that are thin enough make a nice leak light too.

I've heard rope lights discussed before. I would be leary of shoving 120v electrical wires in and out of my horn.
Just my .02

...OTOH, if the project fails, you have a tasteful Christmas illumination for free. :D
