SA80 Series 11 question

I recently purchased a SA80 series 11. It had been in a closet for almost 10 years (it's about 12 years old). It plays great except middle E and D are very sharp. Is this something unique to this model horn? Has anyone else had this experience and if so how did you fix it? Thanks!

    The sharp middle D is a characteristic among selmers and yamahas alike. The series III isn' quite as bad with it though. But I don't know about the E. My E is in tune. Just drop your jaw or open your throat or a combination of the two when you play those notes.
