    Then I guess that there is 2 possible causes:
    1. The mouthpiece receiver may be not of a modern standard and your modern mp may be going a little bit too far in
    2. The mouthpiece throat may have been tampered and again the mouthpiece is going again too far in.

    There is a 3rd not too likely cause - your cornet is high pitch - not very likely with capri cornets to my knowledge, though I am not a vintage expert...Dale? A.N.A.? Any thoughts?

    The David King mpc. is a fine mpc. Very similar to a Wick 4 IMHO. If all the notes are playing sharp - why not just pull the tuning slide out ??
