Thread Name: Me flute's gone wobbly...
Subject: Me flute's gone wobbly...
Can any fellow concert-type flute platers help? The bottom joint isn't hugging the middle joint any more. I've tried all manner of wrappings, nothing works, only resorting to plenty of joint grease and a ciggie paper wrapped around it. I would like to know a technical solution, I can't think of any method that would guarantee keeping the joint air-tight. Fiddle players get a bit cross when I'm waving it about and the end falls off onto their delicate wooden instruments... it's bad enough that I dribble on them at the best of times!
