flat

  1. Bb Tenor
    When I play my tenor with the Selmer mouthpiece, it is always flat, even once the horn is warmed up. The mouthpiece is also pushed in all way that it can. I have another mouthpiece but i have no problem with it whatsoever, and it tunes just fine. Anyone know the problem?
  2. P. Mauriat

I like both of those mouthpieces but I found that I had to pull them way back to get in tune. In contrast, with the...
  6. Bb Soprano
    Hello all, I recently got a 1924 King Soprano from ebay for a steal. Just took it to the shop and was fixed up very well except for one problem: it plays extremely flat. I've been experimenting with reeds with not much change. With the mouthpiece I have (an elkhart that I don't know the facing...
