I've been looking for a bari for some time and finally decided to buy a new Yani B902 (from Kessler). I've only had it a few days now.
I almost always play alto and alto is really my thing, but I'd like to play all the horns. On alto I have a pretty good handle on altissimo and harmonics; when jamming I sometimes mess through playing a mid-D but popping out the A (and work on the same thing from low Bb fingerings with alt harmonics).
In any event, on this new bari I find that its rather difficult for me to play a middle D without getting the A harmonic anyway.
I think this just had to do with learning the right voicing for the bari.. but I'm reminded of a friend of mine (who also doesn't play much bari) having a similar issue with a different horn a few months ago.
I was curious if any other bari players are familiar with this phenomena and can confirm this is a user error (or a horn adjustment?)
