Can anyone help with thin sounds? I’ve been criticised by conductors in the past for having a thin tone and got told it again recently. Problem is, the term “thin” seems to mean different things to different people – especially where BB flat basses are concerned - so I’m not really sure what to do about it. It’s getting to the point where I can go through a piece and pick out where I’m going to get knocked off parts before I’ve even played it, because “It just doesn’t sound right” which is really disheartening when you’ve practised them. And once you’ve started getting knocked off, it’s hard to re -establish yourself. I’ve heard people say “just use more air” but that just makes the same sound, only louder! Any advice? It's really starting to affect my confidence.
