Re: High Ab unstable

Not really. You tune the Bb in first position slightly out; you still need to use your tuning slide to adjust that pitch. Some push their tuning all the way in and do all their tuning with chops and/or the hand slide. That makes the tuning slide pointless. My main tuning slides are indeed pointless...

Re: High Ab unstable

It arpeggiates a Dom. 7 chord, so in just intonation the Ab should be 31 cents flat, right? "should"? That's open to debate. I mean, if you're playing in just intonation as a tuning system, yes sure. Well that is what I wrote. But you can't play Mozart in "just intonation". Not sure I agree with th...

Re: High Ab unstable

When it comes to the discussion about long positions I think players fall into at least four categories. 1. At the bumper - Bb at the bumper which is noob-stuff as it does not allow adjustments for flat notes on first position. 2. Away from the bumper - about one and a half cm off the bumper to all...

Welcome to the club. I've never liked high Ab. But I play it in 1st and it's great there. The Ab in 1st is SO FLAT. I play regularly with an old professional who STILL, after 30+ years, recounts a story of an individual who played the Mozart Requiem Tuba Mirum Ab in 1st. DO NOT PLAY THE Ab IN 1ST P...

Re: Playing loud with projection - lip compression or not?

Many times, the correct amount of "compression" can be found simply by free-buzzing, and what I call buzz-ins and buzz-outs. Free-buzzing and placing the mouthpiece on while continuing the buzz is often a good way to know how much compression is required. Usually artificially squishing more lip into...
