 Selmer Series 9 intonation
Author: Tobin 
Date:   2006-09-29 15:26

Hello All,

I have two students who play the Selmer Series 9. All of my horns are Buffet's, and I am unfamiliar with the pitch tendencies of this instrument. More specifically:

The first student is a strong player with good fundamentals and an ever improving focus to her sound. She plays sharp throughout the horn as much as 20-25 cents. I am inclined to suggest tuning rings to solve this problem. (There is no evidence of biting).

The second is improving but not as strong. Maintaining a flat/pointed chin is an issue for this student. Her Selmer was recently overhauled and has really benefitted in this respect.

This student was 25-30 cents sharp in the chalumeau AFTER we had pulled every joint 1-2mm. Her clarion and altissimo were in tune however.

Any thoughts on how I can help them?

General information on the Series 9 and/or specific advice for each student greatly appreciated!
