 Undertone in Clarion register
Author: Nelson

Hi, I'm getting on in years now and have been playing the clt daily ...(usually 1st in community orchestras) for decades....but I am finding an annoying undertone is now really obvious in articulated passages from around G up to the C (second ledger line up). I have tried to eliminate it following various tutor books such as Stein/Pino/Davies et al. I have tried taking in more MP, taking in less MP , firm embouchure, breath support, keeping the airstream moving....all of the approaches I can think of.... but the dull undertone still is there and most disappointing. I can hold notes almost as well as any around me but something needs sorting out. I have around 20 mouthpieces (tips around 119 to 127....reeds 2.5) but the three or four I favour don't eliminate the unwanted undertone

I'm now 83 and I don't expect top results but I'm not ready to close the case just yet. May I ask if there is a method that has worked for others

Best regards
