Well, I bought this bari on the bay some years back. It looked like it had been thrown off a moving truck into traffic, but after about a grand worth of rework and repad, it plays stellar! The neck was actually split and needed patching underneath as it wouldn't play in the mid range hardly at all, and once returned from that repair, I found that it has alway been unfocussed on low c#, c, Bb, but otherwise plays great. Any thoughts as to what causes this? I've tried 6 mpces, metal and plastic, countless reeds both plastic and cane, but am at my wits end with it. I need to buy a low A horn now, but have to ensure this one works properly before I sell it. Any thoughts are welcome.
