 Re: Symptoms of clogged octave vent

Wow, some progress but not fully solved. Blowing through the top joint with the lower octave vent open at first caused no change and nothing ejected from within. On a second attempt, I could not even get air though until I blew much harder and out foamed a lot of white goop. I removed the key and was able to pass a sliver of cane through, but after all that I am still having some issues. There is an imbalance between the F# and its bridge to the top joint B flat and C (conservatory system).

In any case I am through with making things worse, and I was able to schedule service sooner than expected so I'll leave it to a professional. It's even under shop warranty.
