Hello, I play a Yani A901, with a V16 A5 mp and V16 3 reeds. I'm having this problem where after i play for 2 hours, my tone gets bright and piercing in the upper register. I always push from my diaphragm, and support my air and i can't figure out what the problem is. Any ideas/suggestions?

It sounds to me like your embouchure is probably tiring and you are biting more. Long-tones and overtone practice should help over time. Keep a tuner in front of you when doing the long tones. This will help you recognize fluctuations in your embouchure.
