Yani 901 Bari Problem

638 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

Sounds like something is lodged inside the body tube high up in the upper stack region or the pigtail. Is the high E or high F key bent with the pad/key cup off of the tonehole? Is the G# key closed all the way when not engaged? Just some starters for you..
