SX90R and Altissimo

1979 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Marcus Melody
My SX90R tenor (bought new in 2000) really has trouble with the altissimo range.
My tech went over the horn and said it is perfect.

When I pick up my MkVI the high notes just pop out of the horn (using the same barone hollywood 7* on both.) It really puts a damper on other wise a great sounding horn.

any suggestions?

I put my MK VI away when I bought the SX90R and played it for 7 years!
I always assumed it was me, but about 6 mounths ago I pulled out my old MK VI and it just worked no problem! I'm 53 years old been playing since I was a kid and been a pro or semi pro my whole life.
already went through the whole mouthpiece thing. all it did was screw my head up.
