    I pinged one of our tárogató experts, hoping to find him available. I know a lot of people buying a Bb tárogató (like I did) tried various soprano sax mouthpieces with some success. In my case, if it...

    I hope you've noticed the banner ads at the top of the forum. We've had them up for a year now, after Quinn and SeaWind said that they'd give us cash in exchange for banner space. The other day, Pete...

    I've been fascinated by this new find, Jon Gomm, who plays guitar as both a string and percussion instrument. Lovely stuff:

    Not sure what you have there and not sure it matters. Bass clarinets really need a nice mouthpiece. Playing in the clarion range can be really tough on instruments with mechanical problems too. If...

    Have you any thoughts about oiling this instrument's wood? Looks really dry.

    I prefer Legere Signature (new I believe since SOTSDO tried them) on big instruments, Plasticover on clarinet/sax, and Fibercell for any. All are fine and last a long time. You may find that your...

    Agreed, for the cost of the repair you could get a fine used instrument.

    You know ultimately you're gonna do what you want to do no matter what anyone sez. We think you probably have a fine instrument that may need some tweaking and that you'd be better off spending your...

    Welcome Dmacc, will you be taking lessons? Some of us provide a free first lesson for late-bloomers to give you a jump on the project.

    The Vandoren is a fine mouthpiece that will serve you well. Don't even start to think about other mouthpieces until you have spent at least a year on your clarinet or if your music instructor...

    When I hear stuffy, I wonder if the player knows that the reed strength you end up using can depend a lot on the mouthpiece. As a general rule, mouthpieces with wide tip openings and/or shorter lays...

    Welcome Prince. Have you tried different mouthpieces? Unless the neck is damaged, getting another neck is usually just about glitz. What is your musical background? What kind of music you you play?

    On vintage instruments made by the mainstream manufacturers real gold was used and done similar to plating, but with much much thinner layer. So there should be a thin layer of silver and thin even...

    Michael, the plateau key for the right hand B-key surprised me. Nice pics.

    Reading the reviews, I think I'll stick with this K&M one. I don't know why people are complaining about a $20 price point though, that's just weird.

    There is a lot of call for a sax player (usually the bari sax player) to double on bass clarinet. I love the sound of the bass clarinet but after terrible luck with some nice but cheap instruments, I...

    To be quite frank, my first thought is, I'd have to put more money into repairs than these instruments are worth. And I can get much better horns for that kind of money. YMMV.
