I've heard some beginners model clarinets were designed to play a little sharp to compensate for young {weak) embouchures. I don't know this to be absolute fact but I do have a couple of student models in my "pile" that do play sharp thoughout the entire range, especialy the high notes. Anybody else have any knowledge on this?

I bought a Selmer Bundy Eb soprano clarinet at a pawn shop. This is, of course, a student grade instrument. It had its original mouthpiece and was consistantly sharp across the board. I bought a Vandoren 5RV for it and that brought the pitch down to being in tune.
