I am having intonation issues on F tuba. Now I know that it is not my F, because this occurs on all F tubas that I try. I have been playing F for a while now and my pitch seems to keep getting more and more sharp. What should I do to help bring my pitch down? My tuning slide was out so far that it fell out during my jury this semester. I currently play on a B&S PT-15. Should I try a different mouthpiece (i play on a yamaha Bobo signature series) if so, what kind should i try? Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks in Advance.
