Selmer Super Balanced Action Alto intonation

6813 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'm using a C* for classical and a meyer 5m for jazz. The meyer gives the most intonation issues. Low B is pretty nice actually slightly sharp but not too much of an issue no gurgle. I've been experimenting with tuning slightly sharp and lipping down but thats not really working out.
