Hey, no fair easily solving a stuffy D problem!!! I've gone round and round with this issue on various horns and have rarely gotten completly rid of the problem. One of the most puzzling 'solutions' is that sometimes a different mouthpiece can really make an improvement on D stuffiness without effecting pitch. With the original mouthpiece on my 1929 True Tone, I hardly notice the stuffiness on D2. With some of the modern mouthpieces (1940-50), it feels like somebody stuffs a rag in the horn everytime I hit D2, although every other note is brighter.

I'm even thinking of trying the ridiculous solution of super-gluing stuff to my neck, as mentioned above. Should I start around my adam's apple?
