 Teachers: Why is crossing the break hard?
Author: Matt74

What is the most common reason for difficulty crossing the break?

I know at least eight reasons:

1. air column length/resistance differential
2. bad pinky key regulation
3. bad 1-1 Bb/Eb regulation
4. other leaks
5. bumping the horn when covering the holes
6. biting/tension
7. bad support
8. bad voicing

In my own experience regulation has been the main culprit, although I have had them all.
