Hey, just wrote up some suggestions for fixing a sticky the G# pad. Blog post is here: http://everythingsaxophone.blogspot....sharp-key.html
The gist is:
- Bending the G# spring further to get more power
- Cleaning with liquid soap and water
- Leaving some liquid soap and water on the pad, basically using the liquid soap to lubricate the pad
- Using some light oil to lubricate the pad
- Traditional dry cleaning with a dollar bill or pad cleaning paper
What else could we add?
