 Selmer Series 9 Intonation Issues
Author: bassclgirl92

Hi all,

I have a Selmer Series 9 and recently purchased a new mouthpiece for it. My setup is absolutely amazing - it speaks effortlessly and has great sound. The only problem is that I'm now noticing how out of whack my intonation is. When it's first warming up, it plays flat. When it's warmed up, however, the middle notes (particularly C up to A) are insanely sharp. But pulling out makes other notes in the upper registers go flat.

I am using a Vandoren 5RV Lyre mouthpiece and a size 3 Vandoren V21 reed. I don't know anything about the barrel - it is just whatever came with the instrument when I purchased it.

I am unsure if the instrument was always sharp, as I primarily play bass and have not played clarinet since my marching band days (and when I did, it was a different horn).

I went to the Backun site and spoke to someone there who recommended a slightly longer Fatboy barrel, and said that my mouthpiece tends to play high.
