I just bought my used flute, $10, so far it has played well, I am now attempting to play the low c and c#. When I hold the foot joint upside down, the keys will close separately, but when I hold it up straight like I am playing, they both close together. So, I am unable to play the c# note. The problem seems to be in the roller. ( I think that's what it is called)
I am a beginner at the flute but play several other instruments. My husband is very handy, and I am wondering if this is something we might be able to fix our selves. However, I haven't been able to figure out what is causing my problem. The flute is an Olds. Likely not the best brand, but for a total beginner, I am very pleased after two weeks of learning.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
