Even before looking at a tuner to see how wide the interval is, going from
throat A to throat Bb is audibly a much bigger jump than it should be. The Bb is
the major problem. The horn overall runs sharp (so a lot of that may just be
me), but that's an especially bad note. I've noticed that on other basses I've
played, but not as bad as this one is.
