Bari Sax

I recently been assigned to play Bari Sax and I have a lots of low D’s and C’a but I can’t get them out. It’s been tough adjusting my embouchure to it but that isn’t my problem. When ever I play a D it just plays a weird pitch, it isn’t a D but it isn’t not a D. It’s kind of hard to explain but it isn’t the proper tone. I would really app any tips or advice, my thinking is just that I haven’t been playing long enough and need to give it time to form properly.

    Re: Bari Sax

    Are you getting some overtones or perhaps some warble?  It sounds like you may have some leaks.  Put a leak light down the horn or take it into a tech and have him check it out.
