These are the worst, I have a sop that plays top to bottom one second, then goes dead, and misses notes.It's something to do with the G,A,A sharpe cluster,but I really can't see what.

What notes are missing?
How does it play bottom to top?
Is the G# pad closing reliably?
Intruiging isn't it?

Intriguing? It's bloody annoying! Will never do it when you want to show someone!
I am still, occasionally, cracking the middle G on my tenor....have to get the embouchure just right :) (Nothing wrong with the sax)

Oh, and BTW, ilovebech, you have an intermittEnt fault in your spell-checker >:)

Check the spring on the normally closed f# aux key, it's easy to unhook as you're cleaning, and can give this sort of intermittent problem. If it's not that check the other keys that are held closed by springs - and also check they open when they should, not sticking closed.

No, but I do think someone is out to get me because of my alleged obsession with correct spelling :)))
