What sources do you use when you have to repair an instrument? Can you recommend any websites with videos, online guides, books, forums etc. so when I have something wrong, I can look it up and fix it? Right now, a student’s flute wont work below G. The back pad to the left of the player’s right thumb seems to have a leak, because when I push it in, the note plays fine. Any help is greatly appreciated!
From my experience with flutes most issues deal with needing an adjustment. There are several screws in the lower part below G that if can be adjusted if it’s out of alignment. I’d start there with an F and see if the pad is closing all the way. By the way, when one is out you have to check them all.
