    I would say you have the ideal set as far as reed and mouthpieces go.  The horn shouldn't be a key factor with this issue.  My one small piece of advice would be to try taking in a bit more mouthpiece and see if that may give you a slight edge.  

    I would also be very interested in any advice you may have after you've been working the issue.

    Best of luck.
