Is this normal?

I just bought a brand new Yamaha 62II. Whenever I press the octave key, the G key comes down slightly (left hand, ring finger). Never enough to cover the tone hole, but enough to make my upper A and upper B sound pinched. This isn't normal, is it? Thanks!

    nope, not at all. You should probably call up Yamaha, your sax is still on warranty I assume. I have a YTS62II, and it doesn't do any of that.

      I took it back to the place I bought it. At first, I could tell he was trying to blame it on me, even though I've taken the sax out of its case twice, and the first time I noticed the problem. Plus, the rollers on the left-hand-pinkie cluster are mis-leveled. So he'll fix them both. But it makes me wonder if I'm so inattentive when I buy a saxophone or whether he was trying to sell me somthing that wasn't completely 100%. Who knows. Hopefully, he'll fix it correctly. Thanks!
