the vacuum test is not good at all - but all of the pads are closed and I dont see any light from the pad/tonehole area when I press down normally. I just put new pads but I made them from a new wine cork that I have - it is good because there are no pits in the cork - but just the same I have a new pad set coming in. - I dont know where the leak could be from there are no cracks in the wood although the seller said there was a repaired crack - I cant see it - he said that it did not go through the wood body. Do you think skin /felt pads would be better for the lower joint ?
