 Re: Reeds Squeak

You might just have a leak in the lower joint, or possibly a problem with the linkage between the two joints being maladjusted. either of these would show up as squeaks.

Can you get a good sound with a light touch playing a clarion split-finger Bb...this is the one with the index finger on both the RH and LH.

Also, finger a G clarion (no RH fingers down...should be easy to play without squeak) and slowly (and with a light touch) try to produce a clear, sustained F (RH index down), then E, then D. Do you need more than a light touch to get any of these notes without squeaking? If so, you probably have a leak in either the key attached to the ring key stack or possibly the Aux Eb (less likely)
