 EH thumb octave key issue
Author: mddds 
Date:   2018-11-09 22:54

hi there,

recently, noticed that when i depress the LH thumb octave key, the low g or a keeps playing without any hint of change.

i have to really increase air flow and embouchure pressure to get it - and the higher note still does not reliably come out.

this happens even within a few minutes of playing and then persists.

i thought it was water in the hole but even after blowing out the tonehole (no water comes out) it does not help.

the second octave key does not leak or stick.

didn't feel any leaks in the upper joint but did not use a machine.

any thoughts?

p.s. the cork on the crook needs to be replaced but is not loose and appears to seal well.
