Help all those repair experts...
Playing earlier today and I noticed a clicking and buzzing sound when playing around the throat A, G# area. Tonight it seemed very prominent and a lot of water was collecting around here adding bubbly sounds to the mix
Looking closely at the A key I noticed that the pad is loose so the question is this what do I do?
The shop I bought it from is in Bradford (I'm York based) but they'd do it whilst I wait as they have an on site repairer.
I could take it into Banks but they'd send it off and I'd be without it for at least a week, maybe more.
Or maybe my teacher could sort it out for me but he's away for another week? two?
If I leave it is the pad likely to fall off all together/ become unplayable???
I'm not sure what the lesser of the evils is. I do have a spare student clarinet but that's not in perfect playing condition and certainly not a patch on my new one and I need to make band rehearsal on Monday ...
Any advice for me?
