Greetings,

I tried the search button first, but found nothing specific...

I noticed (using a leak light) that the G# key on my JK SX90r (NS) is leaking a little bit when no keys are pressed or when the left hand keys are pressed down.
I haven't noticed anything wrong when playing. Could this small leak (pad is lifted approx. 0,3 mm parallel with the tone hole when normally the spring should close it fully) cause anything problematic on G?
G pops out fine. I assume it wouldn't affect A and higher because of the open G key.

Even F# and down to low Bb is no problem because of the mechanism that presses down the G# key fully. So no leaks when playing these bottom notes.

Could this leak have any influence other than on G, say the upper stack?

Should I have it fixed even when I have no problem playing the horn?

Thanks clarnibass,

I figured it out. A small adjustment screw (leverage on the anti G# key sticky mechanism) got out of adjustment. A few turns with a screwdriver anti-clockwise and voila... Perfect again.

I did had some trouble when playing below G only when I had the G# key depressed: major leak syndrome!

Thanks anyway!
