Intonation problem with SR alto
Hi, I recently got an SR alto piece size 8 for my trusty alto. I love my tenor 8 SR and I thought i'd try one on alto.
It's great BUT it's flat, really flat. My normal alto piece is a meyer 6 HR, and I can play in tune on that. My alto is a Carl Ludwig, a German 'almost Keilwerth', with rolled tone-holes.
Anyone else with this problem?

Are all the notes flat? Is it too tight on the cork to push in farther?
A Runyon 6 would be closer to your Meyer 6, but I dont think size is the main problem here.
