Subj: Re: flatness at higher dynamic levels

Ed Lacey states that the phenomenon of flattening of pitch at louder dynamics
exists for all reed instruments. I believe that this is not correct. Arthur
Weisburg, in his "The Art of Wind Player", describes in detail how to
overcome the acoustical phenomenon which on double reed instruments, causes
sharpness at loud volumes and flatness and soft dynamics. This is quite the
opposite of what we can expect from a clarinet.
