Selmer Super Balanced Action Alto intonation

6809 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  jdj52
hello all,
I recently purchased a super balanced action and wow intonation is hard on this horn. Any suggestions on how to get the horn to play better in tune ex. is if i tune to F# with octave middle c is extremely flat and notes in that area. I am having issues compensating because i find my self pinching too much getting into the upper register. Also how should i approach long tones while trying to improve pitch. But wow this horn has a killer sound i love it!

I've had intonation problems with these as well. You are right, the intonation is hard.
