 little lever under LH2
Author: Quidenup Oboe

Hi everyone,

I'm playing a Cabart (Loree). The little lever under the LH2 key (sorry, I don't know the name for it), sometimes closes when I play an A (low register), and sometimes it doesn't.

Now, I'm also noticing that my low register A is a bit hit-and-miss in speaking.

Could the two issues be related?

Thank you!

That's your Ab-Bb trill mechanism - the G# key holds the LH2 fingerplate down to give a well-tuned Bb when trilling LH finger 2 whilst fingering Ab. It's a lightly sprung lever and shouldn't hold down the LH2 fingerplate. If it is binding, then get it seen to.

As the note A issues from the LH3 tonehole, you could have something else causing you trouble.
