Non-Cumulative Leak Effects?

859 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  jbtsax
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?

or just clamp the G# closed with a rubber band and try to play D-->F
