Re: Problem with Flute, how to fix?

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment and sorry for my late reply, I do not check internet forums so often. I ended up adjusting the 2 screws nearby and the flute works well again, I did experiment a bit as I was told turning it too far will mess up the setup. But since it was a good le...
