A Little Flute-adjust Help, Please
Over the years, I have noted that many eight-key players not only twist the foot joint so the keys are out of the way, but also remove the c and c# keys entirely. I decided to experiment and I find this opens up the sound and the volume. Good stuff. My problem is that the threaded shaft that goes through tbe grasshopper-leg joint for both keys is damaged at the top so it cannot be unscrewed. Because the keys are jointed, they simply pull apart at the joint, so the keys over the holes are gone. Still, a portion remains attached to the flute and I’d like to get the last bits removed. Suggestions?
