Various people have blamed a double-buzz on:
1) too flabby an embouchure (corners not firm enough);
2) an incompletely integrated embouchure, such that one part of the embouchure is buzzing
on one partial, while another part of the embouchure is buzzing on another partial;
3) buzzing sharp or flat, relative to what the horn wants to play;
4) "humming" vocalizations while playing;
5) too closed a throat.
Perhaps (2) is caused by (1), or by (1) and (3).
