 Re: Low note intonation sharp
Author: lexxmexx

The upper E is in tune. I had tried it on 2 different clarinets and both have the same quirk. Is it coincidental that both clarinets have the same problem or it is actually me?

I have tried using the pinky F#/C# key and it brings the pitching back down to in tune.

If I play around low A range like slurring up and down from low B to G. The upper and lower notes are in tune and when it reaches A, the tuner meter will have a spike towards the right side. It can be as high as +30cents if I maintain the same embouchure or voicing. So I need to consciously voice down when hitting the low A but this only works when playing very slow passages or holding it as a long note.
