Thread: Altissimo on spoiler

  1. #1

    Default Altissimo on spoiler

    Are the altissimo notes harder to hit with the spoiler in on a Runyon? Also, does the spoiler affect intonation on these notes?

    The spoiler generally should help with altissimo. I can see an argument coming here, but the majority of folks are aided with high baffle smaller chambered mouthpieces. Of course the trade of is that you lose some of the body to your tone.

    I'd say the answer to both of your questions is "no."
