    I just got back from a trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I did some playing. When I come back to my hometown in Eastern Missouri, I tried to play, and my sound was suddenly all airy. It sounds terrible, and I have an audition coming up in about 3 weeks. Does anybody know what happened to my sound, and how to fix it?

    Check the corks. Make sure you have a seal. Use a thickker grease on the slides to see if they are leaking. Other than that, check with a tech.
