Greetings, I have a thread going in the Beaugnier section about this old Vito low A baritone that I just got. I started putting it back together today and it plays nice and sounds great up to G. Then A and B are quite flat. Then C is back to being in tune. Any ideas? I've got the upper stack venting pretty wide open and the octave keys are venting plenty. I've only got 2 bari mouthpieces and one [my Otto Link] really needs work because it came from the factory in sad shape. The problem seems the same with both pieces. What do you guys think? Thanks.

Yes, It's in both octaves. G1 and G2 are nicely in tune with each other. I did a lot of dent removal in the upper crook so definately nothing in there. I'm starting to wonder if I need to lower the action everywhere and then push the mouthpiece in further [I'm already in pretty far].

Are side C and Bb in tune? Do you know if it played in tune before you got it?

Is the other mouthpiece similar to the link in design? Maybe a different design might have some effect on this.

Well I found a leak in the one joint I didn't redo, the neck receiver. Wow, what a difference!
