My suggestion would be to invest in a mouthpiece that does not allow you to
play so sharp. There are many out there - the one that comes to mind is
the Pyne M - it will drop your pitch immediately! There are others also,
but the mouthpiece is probably causing the sharpness - especially if your
horn has been worked on by Brannen and he has adjusted it using his Kaspar.
