I've finally gotten around to spending some time on a tenor I bought a while back and have discovered something strange. The low notes from low C down to low Bb respond very well, but the notes from low F to low D do not respond well. They are difficult to get to sound and have a tendency to gurgle. Makes me think there are leaks, but if there are, shouldn't the response on the bell notes be at least as bad if not worse?
