I surmise this may be related to the action of the springs, given the related mechanical parts are in good shape. Might this indicate that some springs may be getting weak?

Re: Atsui?

Atsui is just the name given to represent that precious metal cladding can be added to any Altus flute. We offer both Gold and Platinum cladding. Atsui is NOT a model. Atsui is a finish and it is an option.
