The high E on the G-Row of my Marcus G/D stopped functioning yesterday in the middle
of a session (R4^ in my terms). I was able to partially get round this by using the E on the
D-row (dR2^), but my question is - is this a 'sticking valve'?
- I have shaken the instrument (gently and carefully!) and there is nothing rattling around
- I can hear air passing through the valve when I (gently and slowly!) draw the bellows out
with R4 depressed - there is simply no sound. I do seem to need more pressure to do this
pull on R4, than I do doing the same on dR2, so summat's wrong...
I am prepared to have the end off and have a look, but I'm still a nervous beginner as far
as maintenance like this is concerned, so I'd like to canvass opinion here.
What's my best approach to this? Any advice welcome.
Fortunately, I have a second G/D, so I'm not about to be silenced by this slight mishap (my
fellow musicians might not regard this as fortunate... ) .
