I am having problems with an old Besson compensating 3v Bb tuba I'm using. I was using it to practice a solo piece I've been playing and noticed that it will not slot well when going from F (just below staff) to E... I've tried over and over, but there's always a disruption in airflow... no matter how fast I press down the pistons.
Also, it seems that the horn cannot produce a good G (top line of the staff)... It feels as if the vibration is breaking down over itself and the sound never becomes clear. It sounds like it needs focussing but I don't know what to do to fix that.
