What would you point to as possible problems in this scenario:
- Horn goes to tech, tech removes leaks
- I play test on a new reed, find the lower octave a little resistant but I can get all notes out
- Tech asks me to call him in a few days with feedback if necessary
- I find it very difficult to subtone anything below a D, however, all lower octave notes come out if I don't attempt to subtone them (I tried multiple reeds, new and used, and multiple mouthpieces. some mouthpieces were slightly better than others but none were great)
Have any of you had an experience like this? Does this mean the horn is still leaking somewhere? If not, any other ideas?
