MY SAX SQUEAKS
by: Anonymous

if it played ok in the am and not in the pm some thing obviously happened. it may be very simple such as a spring that came off a pin allowing a pad to not close or open properly. if you look closely at how the springs are held under tension and look for one that is not properly located or is free on the outer end simply putting it back in place may do the trick. another possible cause is a loose screw allowing a rod to get out of place. a more serious cause could be a bent pad key. you can contact me at barlow.osier@gmail.com good luck
