Yani 901 Bari Problem

637 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bariforever
Last week at a concert my bari played great in concert band, in the break between concert band and jazz band performances I put it back in the case, when I took it out and put my Runyon metal quantum on for jazz band it would not play A or B in the lower register, it would try to jump to the upper register like the octive key was pressed. I put the stock mouthpiece/reed combination back on and it was better but I still had to control it with air and emboucher. I looked it over and saw no pads that were out of alignment and checked to see if something was in the horn. I bought this horn new in 2000 and has been really great, I presume it is an air leak somewhere, anybody have any ideas? Thanks for the help

Thanks for the tips guys. I have looked at the palm key pads and they are OK and a fellow jazz band member that is a retired instrument tech held the octave pads down and the G# pad while I held the notes and found nothing. The reason I think there is a foreign object stuck in the horn is that it played great when it went in the case and came out like junk. I will look more, if you think of anything else please let me know.
