read this thread b/c I was having the same issue. No quiver up high, strong high F on pivot stabolizer, no prob, but quivering down low. Tried more pressure down low all around, thinking about the weight being on bottom lip. Really seems to help! and is a breakthrough for me.
Praise the Lord for this forum!

Yes, quivering or shaking especially in the low range, is usually a sign of a "floating" embouchure with no solidity. Firm contact and the "Four Legs" as described by Reinhardt is necessary in all ranges.

Chris LaBarbera once said (in a thread here) that you should use as much mouthpiece pressure on a low C as you do for a high C.

"Four Legs" is the secure balanced feeling produced by using the right pressure WHERE and WHEN you need it, combined with firm corners, a pucker OUTSIDE of the mouthpiece (not inside or under it), and using your correct pivot and jaw manipulation.

So true!

I've been working on focusing the "pucker" and mouthpiece in the (extreme) lower register, and when I get it just right, it helps me connect the entire range with so much more facility and consistency... it makes playing easy and reliable like nothing else.

Just a note, in case somebody comes in to look...the original post contains the key phrase of being fatigued when the shaking occurs. Rest a while and come back.
