Re: neck trouble
200 bucks for that are you kidding me?!? this is probably one of the MOST gorilla like repairs in saxophone repairs other than dents and bent bells. The problem is that, either your upper octave key actuator or the the actual octave key itself is bent, if it is the actuator, you would want to take it to a tech to bend it right, its REALLY hard to bend, and easily screwed up, not just the pin, but the whole damn mechanism. if it is the octave key, bend the tennon end of the key to the right slightly, untill it is just next to the actuator at the normal position. 200 bucks is a rip off, that would imply about three and a half hours of work, longer than the time for an entire repad.
