 RE: Festival and Repairs

9 months ago I had a new Leblanc Infinte air freighted to me here in Tasmania from the U.S. The ring on the large end of the bell moved when assembling the instrument, but after a few days rehumidifying the wood after its long journey in the dry upper atmosphere it tightened up, and has not been a problem since (Just as Tom Ridenour said it would!).

Try placing a damp sponge inside a 35mm film casstte with perforations in the lid, inside your instrument case. It may well do the trick for you.

Best regards,

Roger Harvey
