how hard is it to adjust action?

Just wondering if it's possible to adjust the action on my yas62 to make it a less stiff. In particular is the Eb right hand key, which is really causing me problems for my RH little finger, because it is really very stiff. The movement from C# to Eb is very difficult, compared with other saxes.

I got the sax used, but I don't think it had been played very much.

Is it very expensive for a tech to do this modification?

cheers!

Pop the spring off. If the key moves easily
it's just an overstiff spring. Easy fix

It's fairly simple to do if you are careful, pop off the spring (with the key still on) if you have a spring hook, or a small crochet hook, or a small piece of metal or wood with a V cut in the end, use it to push the spring gently back towards its latch. hook it on again and test and adjust.

If you popped it into me I would do it for free. At most you'll be charged a minimum fee - if that - anywhere else.
