Thanks. I did mention ambient temperature, which is probably the same as the saxophone conducts heat quickly, so I'll change that to instrument temperature. Thankslooks good
add reed & sax temperature to things that affect tuning (para 2)
earn -> learn step 1, para 2
Tuning tendencies, lower register box - not clear which C# or other notes you're talking about.
Intonation checklist, find Ornette Coleman, where -> were
Needs an ending
Just to nitpick, it's the temperature of the air inside the horn that affects pitch. Don't know if tht's an important enough distinction to wrrant mention. Instrument temperature is a good enough proxy for it anyway.Thanks.

Surely metal does expand as it gets warmer - remember the brass ball and hoop from physics lessons? And if it does, then doesn't the sax (as well as getting slightly longer) also become narrower inside as the metal expands, thus sharper?People often think that metal expands as it gets warmer, so the saxophone gets longer so flatter.
