 Re: Need help identifying a Normandy

Hi Ursa,

Finally took the time to sit down with a tuner to adjust the Normandy, your suggestion about the Hite Premier was bang-on, and after pulling out a little here and there I have it mostly in tune save for the chalumeau A, which is quite sharp. I also haven't noticed the stuffiness I reported earlier.

The only downside is that I'm not a massive fan of the Hite itself, I've been a lot more prone to squeaking (Curiously I had initially this problem as well with the last Babbitt mouthpiece I tried, the Debut, although not with Zinners), although it's probably just me getting accustomed to it. It's also not as easy to play, although it's a little more open than what I'm used to (I'm already seeing improved results with my softer reeds), and I've perhaps been spoiled by my Hawkins. May I ask what other mouthpieces, if any have also tuned well for you with Normandies?
