Re: Marching Warm Up Tuning A=440+?
I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but I always try to find where the kids are and adjust up if necessary. So, yes, a few cents sharper if need be.
The only thing to consider is your front ensemble. If you get drastically sharper (or flatter when it gets cold), you might have issues against the keyboards or any electronics you might have.
With the much warmer than usual October upon us do you pull out slides to the point where its A=440 or do you tune up a few cents so slides arent out a ridiculous amount? My group has pretty strong characteristic sounds and normally doesn't have issues with this, but with the heat and performing in the afternoons its been a struggle.
