 Re: Crack on EH Bell

The the metal around the male end of the tenon, just below the cork. They are so loose that they can come out. It's actually an instrument I just acquired. Humidity is very low, although it did come from a place with high humidity. But it was in a shop for who knows how long. Their blame is on the shipping, although I'm skeptical.

I checked for other cracks and there doesn't seem to have any other than on the bell. Oddly the socket linings seem to have a bit of rust staining. Tried to wipe it off but still some orange spots. The case is definitely now humidified and I gave it a good dose of oiling (it looked very dry). I just hope after fixing the tenons and the bell and after it acclimates to my climate (as much as it can) that it remains stable. The instrument is about 10 years old and looks like it was well played.

Over the next week I plan to have it examined by my teacher and then take it to the shop to get repaired.
