OK, this has bugged me for a long time. How do you generate power, without compromising quality? I've got decent tuning, a not too bad sound, and I've never really had too many major problems with note production (Though of course, it can always be better) and I've never had problems with control playing quietly. But whenever I try and push my double-forte and stretch my dynamic at the top, I find myself splitting and bursting every note. I could get a fair dynamic on Eb, but now I'm on BB I just can't control it. It's really starting to hamper my playing because I can't generate anywhere near they dynamic I need to balance up without completely compromising the quality. Anyone any tips for how to improve this? Edit: Yes, after 4 years, 4 months and nearly 1500 posts, 13 has FINALLY got a new avatar!
