 contra-alto clarion problem solved
Author: Ajay

UPDATE: we found the problem (see latest post)

Yesterday I was lent my concert band's contra-alto clarinet. I have a week to get to know it before our next practice, and now I've played it for a few hours the low notes are fine, and so is the clarion register if I play really quietly, but if I try to play even slightly louder the sound gets really coarse.
Are there any specific drills I can do or changes I should make to my embouchure to help with this?
