Gene, I presume you have the BD5-13 series, which is typically quite flat by itself. The Legere EC reeds will make it even flatter. To make this combination work requires at least a 64mm barrel.

I would recommend trying the standard BD5 (non-series 13) pitched at A442. With the Legere reed, this combination should play in tune with a 65-66mm barrel. Personally, I also prefer the feel of the standard BD5 as it is less resistant and tonally more flexible.

Good luck!
