If I know what you're talking about ... in that your reeds crow a C but then you play sharp, that is an embouchure problem in that you are not closing down around the reed enough to get it down to pitch. You need variation both directions to play in tune. Many amatuers I have run into, who are playing on good reeds made by their teachers, will stick the tuner in front of them, bend the pitch down to where it needs to be, put the tuner away, and then go back to blowing as hard as they can and playing a 1/4 tone sharp. I don't know if this could be what you're talking about, but yes, definitely, I have to "play down to the pitch" on a properly made reed, through the use of the embouchure's closing around it.
