I agree with all of the above

I would add that although good support is even more important than on the smaller saxes, it´s also good to lay off a little on the bari. It´s terribly easy to overblow it -particularly when the going gets a bit excitable. Remember that it´s not as "cutting" a sound as on tenor, even, but that´s not to say that you aren´t loud!
