Hola fellow bassoonists!

I sense a life story coming here but basically, here’s the problem: I’m ridiculously sharp. This is a flicked middle C and it’s not too bad but my upper G’s and A’s are a quarter tone sharp, sometimes on the A’s, even a full semitone.

I’m getting my braces off tomorrow which will hopefully help with it since after these uglies are out, I won’t have to bite on my reeds so much but I also have a very sharp bassoon. I’m not sure of the exact model but it’s a W. Schreiber and the crook is too (it reads KER2 if that’s any help) and it’s fairly new - three years old tops but it’s just so sharp. My whisper key C’s (C2? idk) are insanely sharp and my lower notes aren’t great either. I don’t know what to do. 
SENDHELP?

stravinsky’s rite of spring is about a girl who dances herself to death to appease the russian god of spring.

when it premiered the crowd got so amped up they opened up a mosh pit in the theater and the night would be forever known as the “riot of spring”

classical music is more metal than metal
