Hi there!

I have a Yamaha 211 flute. It is about 14 years old now and for the first time started giving me problems. I am pretty sure I have found the problem but do not know how to fix it. When playing the B and A, there are no problems, however, when playing the G, the second key does not close properly, if I use my pinky to close it, then the sound is perfect. Is there a screw to adjust or a spring to check? We live in a small town in South Africa so I do not have a nearby technician to go to. Playing the F# closes that second G key properly, so it is just the normal G that does not close the second G key completely. Hope that made sense...

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
