 Eb Key cracked open a hair
Author: steve1221

So I have a Loree series B and I have an Eb key that does not make the seal all the way when nothing pressed. Nothing wrong with it tone hole or pad / pad adjustment wise . Its just that the leaf spring does not have any free motion - thus the key is opened just a hair.

So I was wondering what are you suggestions ? - there is cork padding on the lower B key shaft connectors - the link that looks like a slide touching another slide -- kind of hard to describe. I think if I add a thicker material it would give me my free motion but there is a tiny tiny screw to the right of the lower Bb adjustment key that might have something to do with it. Anyway I wanted to run it by you guys and get some info.

The adjustment screw is not touching the leaf spring but still no free motion.. THANKS
