Re: Re: Re: Re: Flappers sticking

Just had the same problem after one gig in Vegas 2 weeks ago. Drastic weather change from Honolulu where I live. The problem fixed itself though without my having to do anything to the box. change from humid 85 to very dry 65 seemed to have had something to do with it. Back in Hawaii now with no sign of the problem at all.

Re: Re: Re: Flappers sticking

I found a bunch of little silica gel pacs in different places in my stuff, blasted them in the microwave, then put them on a plate over a cast iron skillet on low on the stove.

Put the box in the case, threw the gel pacs in, came back an hour later, problem solved. No sluggishness. Probably not catching on the hole rim either, but I haven't played it extensively yet.

old joke...

Accordion to repairman: "It hurts when I do this... what should I do about it?"

Repairman "Don't do that anymore."
