The lower register was consistently 20 to 30 cents sharper than the middle and upper. I'm assuming there are some ways to compensate for this with alternate mouthpieces and barrels, etc. But I went with a different clarinet instead.
thats weird... i've tried another friends clarinet, and i experienced the same issue with the super sharp lower register. i've been suggesting to put some electrical tape in the tone holes, but hes just lazy.
