 Re: Grunting (undertoning) in the lower clarion

Often forgotten with leaks are bad joint corks. Make sure all of the joints are tight and no wobbles, including the mouthpieces. A joint cork which is rotted out taped over and wobbles is just the same as a leaking pad. I generally change these once a year or so. I also think manufacturers are at fault with regards by making these cork joints too narrow and I often widen them by removing wood then recorking with wider cork. This helps prevent wobbles and promotes much tighter seals.

If this doesn't make sense email me for some pics.
