Install New Pearls and Rollers
New mother-of-pearl or deepwater abalone pearls on your horn are not just an aesthetic improvement. Older pearls wear away over time and develop divots, uneven surfaces, and sharp edges. Convex pearls installed in Bis Bb, Front F, Alt F# and G# trill facilitate speed and add comfort. An Uberhaul is the perfect time to replace pearls, change pearl location, and build up pearls (such as the Bis Bb) that are difficult to reach.
Below, an example of an oversize convex bis Bb pearl.
Replacing old rollers, or fitting current rollers with teflon tips, eliminates rattles and buzzing associated with sloppy rollers in addition to making rolling back and forth more effortless.
