And it wouldn't be focused.... Like I said, take it to Ivan, or even Josh Landress
If the distance the leadpipe doesn't make for a change in the relative pitch, I'm guessing a burr or glob of solder in the first valve slide might be causing the weird intonation. Have you tried other 800R's?
1 and 3 would typically sound a G, but with your third valve trigger, it may bring the tone down to an F. I use this technique on my Kanstul flugelhorn (with a first valve trigger) to get some peddle tones into tune.
OR you could try this as well, depending on the length of extension your slide would achieve.
OR you could lengthen the first valve slide on the F while tuning. Curious thing about the trumpet is that this instrument is best tuned on the F. Give this a try as well. Hopefully all other 1st valve combinations will also be in tune, which is the theory.
Havent tried any other. But i may clean it out and see what happens
Get yourself a better flugel.
Have you tried other mouthpieces .... and/or checked to see if the first valve is in alignment?
OR WHAT HE SAID!
. But not a Kanstul, because, apparently, you have to use weird valve combinations to get it in tune. At least, so I read somewhere.
