Owen Anderson Posted December 16, 2022 Share Posted December 16, 2022 I have a metal ended Marcus C/G anglo (hook-style action), and the left hand right-most C row button has been gradually becoming sticky over time, i.e. it does not immediately pop back when I release the button. It started out pretty minor, but has gradually worsened over time, and is now reaching the point where it interferes with playing quickly. I've taken the end off to examine it, and the button appears to function just fine with the end removed. I can see some wear & darkening on the button hole's felt, on the side towards the hand rest. My leading theory is that the button is rubbing against the side of of the hole, which creates enough friction to slow the release. Is replacing the felt on that hole the right next step? Or is there something I should be looking into with respect to the button alignment itself? Anything else I should consider? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
