 Re: Fuzzy tone once again...

I personally believe the sound is not stuffy or fuzzy. But I think it's a little too edgy. Especially the high notes, which pops out too much. It could be that the reed is too hard and you can't control your sound as well, I'm not sure. Maybe a little bright as well, but I think the biggest issue is the edginess. I would prefer a rounder sound for the altissimo notes.

That's my opinion, but in the end, you need to play however you want to sound. No one should tell you how you should sound.
