    I think that you will find the little finger strategy on both the Albert and the Oehler to be substantially different from that on the Klose/Boehm. I always have recommended the Lazarus method book...

    The arrangement of the finger holes on an Albert may cause troubles for someone used to the Klose-Boehm instrument. I'd advise against purchase, but if you can borrow one for a trial, go ahead and...

    Limited eBay full Boehm instrument sweep

    Today, while waiting for the crowd from the Martin Luther King, Junior Day parade to disperse, I took the time to make a limited eBay sweep, and found the following:

    A full Boehm A, complete with...

    My mistake. I confused Oehler with the man who wrote the book on the German clarinets that is the most available source in English today (if and when you can find an English translation copy), one...

    Well, "German system" is really a bit of a misnomer. There were a number of 'systems' that stemmed from the original "six key" clarinet of the virtuoso who started the "modern" clarinet.

    Once the...

    For an answer on the serial number, you would do better to consult someone who follows serial number lists and the like. (Also, I'm pretty hostile to Buffet products, so my understanding of their ins...

    It's a basset horn pitched in F, from a quality maker in what appears to be a high end model. The fingerings for the southward extension of the horn are all located on the front of the horn (i.e., it...

    Playing a woodwind horn in the era of amplification is a hard row to hoe, no doubt about that. I backed up Tina Turner back in the day, and I couldn't believe the dynamic levels that I was required...

    Are you asking a question here? From the stamping, it appears to be one, but from the texture of the body in the photos, I'd be inclined to think that it is not.

    However, I don't claim to be the...

    Well, not really rare so much as obsolete. True, the A clarinet is mostly used for art music purposes, and by folks professional enough to be playing such music. But the horns that we have here are...

    One of my best friends from grade school moved to Argentina back in the Peron days. With her wealthy father, who was probably "connected", if you know what I mean, she settled down into a house with...

    The "L" in the stamps probably indicates that they are low pitch, as it fits with the identification scheme of "LA" = "low pitch horn in A" and "LB" = "low pitch horn in B(b)". I'm not 100% certain...

    The neat thing about the little plugs (from some third party vendor) was that the plugs did all of the terminating. It was a little plastic blob, into which you plugged the phone cable used as the...

    The pad to start suspecting if you don't pick up a leak is the one closed by the third finger right hand touchpiece. Usually, this key is a pivoting lever one, located on the side of the instrument...

    One thing that I enjoy about the Time Machine is that it keeps doing the backups automatically, whether you remember to do it or not. I've got backups running back to 2009, although I do tend to...

    Amen to that, boyo. Those who have never played a well-set up Selmer metal horn have little to no idea about how a metal horn plays.

    And, the disturbing thing about it all is that it costs so...

    That lower joint cork sure doesn't look like one on a well-used horn. Congratulations on keeping it in such good condition for such a long time with so little attention.
