Is the key actually sticking down or is the note just not playing? I have a Horner and have to take it apart from time to time to as the reed gets stuck below the...uh the reed carrier (lack of a better name)? I just slip a business card under the reed and pop it back up. If the key sticks down, I’d try cleaning between them with dry toothbrush.
