Well, I hope you get this problem solved or you might have to change your name to CrappyAristocrat! Seriously, though, I suggest you take it in to a professional repairman because mine plays almost perfectly in tune all the way up. I'm sure it's just a simple adjustment of some kind. Good luck.crappybundy said:Hello,
I recently acquired a model 156 aristocraft tenor that is terribly out of tune on all of the palm keys and altissimo F# + G. These notes are so flat that if I push in the mouthpiece to compensate for it, the low notes sound crappy because I'm lipping down so much.
