something strange...

ok, i'm usually in tune on bari w/ both my high and normal Bb concert, sometimes my high Bb is a little sharp, but not much. I got new reeds, same brand and size, but now my high note is extremely sharp, so i have to drop my jaw as far as i can to get it in tune, is something wrong?

    how long do you soak your reeds? i had the same problem, and also what kind of reeds are they. and the reed maybe bad, i check all my reeds and pick out the good oens over the bads.

        probably a bad patch or try harder reeds if you play classical music, only in jazz do you use softer for bari, well thats what i am told by my professor. or try a different reed set up, like vandoren blue boxes or alexanders.
