I must admit when I read your question I assumed you meant the high b and c above the staff but now I realize you're asking about the altissimo register, above those notes. I don't play the Recital series but I do play the Signature and several notes have the same problem, which I understand is common with this model. The way I overcome this problem is as follows. The high E is flat, I use the side key throat G# when ever I play the high E, the F above is also flat so I either do the same with the F or I use the fork, K, key in the RH when playing the high F. The F# is also flat, as it is with any clarinet I've ever played so I use either the Fork key here too in the RH but use one of the alternate side key fingerings when ever possible. I have them on my website in the fingering chart. The G and above I use fingerings that are not flat. There are many fingerings for the G on my chart as well. Sorry about my misunderstanding, I hope this helps. If you need any more help with this feel free to e-mail me directly. ESP

PS, it could still be that you're not voicing properly or your reed is too soft to get the proper support up there.
