#beginquote# Interesting that your double horn is in the keys of F and Eb..... most doubles nowadays are F and Bb. Anyways, I would say that the chances are that the problem is not going to be with the horn itself. The only problems that you might come across with the horn itself would be if the valves are not oiled properly and are getting stuck at some point, or if one or more of the strings on your valves is broken (this applies only if your valves are "string-action"). Without being sure of exactly what you're doing, and since I'm not really too familiar with the Eb horn, I'm not really too sure what to tell you. The only thing that comes to mind is that you mentioned that you don't change your embouchure at all. If that's the case then it's not really that you're playing the same note out of tune; it's more that you are playing a completely different note. Switching from the F side to the Eb side, even with the same embouchure will mean that you are playing a different note simply because the two sides are pitched in different keys. That's really the only thing I can think of. Recognize that you are playing on, essentially, a different instrument when you switch sides (zero valves depressed on the F side will not give you the same note as zero valves depressed on the Eb side). #endquote#
