while cleaning the spit out of my brand new series II tenor, I peered down the body tube from the neck receiver and noticed a small crescent of material protruding into the bore right around where the body and bow meet, as if the bow and body where not quite aligned with each other. I don't notice any misalignment from the outside. It's too far down to see very well but I wonder if this is common or should I try to exchange the horn. It seems to play alright but for this kind of money it should not look like this, right?
Judging from the way so many saxes actually play BETTER with an object dropped into the bow, especially including wsome Mark VIs, that interruption may conceivably make the sax play BETTER.

When I reglue saxes here though, I don't take that risk, and clean off excess. That is a lot easier to do when it is HALF set.

Does he think that seal system leaks?
Or is he just a solder fanatic?
