    find a GOOD local, local, local, dude you Can trust. no way i send a 6 anywhere unless you have knowledge of them from past experience or reference from others you know. it doesnt sound like more than a adustment, unless yu know something is broken, a key, rod or maybe a spring popped loose. i can't wait to hear the response from the regular crowd.

        find a professional dude that you can trust..ask some local player/teachers who they use. Go to some local music stores, talk to the techs, see what you think. I work in Boise, Idaho, and I know I could fix your six..if I can, then I'm quite sure there is a competent tech in your area who could..just do some research, and make a friend..HI Cube..good to know you're still happinin'.

          thank you for the respond first, I would like to tell you that i'm living in Israel and the truth is that i'm a student and i don't have money to fix it. I went to one place and they wanted 800$, just for the repair. so I came with the idea that maybe it would be cheaper to send it somewhere but it apears right now that i will have to go back to this dude next to me. anyway it is cool to have a place that I can have information about saxophone....

          shipping to the US would get very expensive. probably about as much as the repair. but $800? someones making a pretty penny on that....
