I've been a happy user of the DV for some time now. I've come to realize lately with my teacher that my high D and up are way sharp. I can not loosen up enough to bring it down without losing the note altogether. I am using it on a Yamaha 82Z UL. I took a Selmer SA80-II on trial and it was a little better. However, I put a hard rubber mouthpiece on both horns and the notes came in tune. Could this be some kind of defect in my particular DV or is it just a side effect of metal pieces in general? I don't want to have to give up the DV as I love how I sound on it.
