My poor Neo BBb is suffering from a seized 1st valve slide and I can’t budge it.
Any tested methods or ideas to safely move it?
It’s my own fault for neglecting the poor thing. I may otherwise have to resort to finding a Tuba doctor in Yorks to help. :)
I helped out Dinnington (with Jonathan conducting) a few years back in various contests on BBb (inc. the finals in Cheltenham) - a thoroughly lovely and fantastic group of people, with great ethos and attitudes who made me feel very welcome. :)
