Hello all, my name is Jesse with Hyson Music. I mentioned the issues you are having to my head technician and he offered the following insight:

-When G’s come out as F#’s, it is usually because the F# pad is still down. Possible reasons for this include: A spring may be ‘off’ or the F# Key may be ‘binding’ (this can be anywhere in the lower stack due to the hinge mechanics of the flute)

-As for your issue with the High E, either something is not ‘regulated’ correctly or something is ‘down’ when it shouldn’t be (This would occur as a result of binding keys)

Technician’s Opinion: My guess is that something in the Right-hand key-work is binding.

Please let me know if I can help in any other way!
