  1. Help identifying a Bass clarinet Brand

    I’m starting a new job at a high school and I’m doing inventory of the instruments we have in the closet. I come across a very vintage looking bass clarinet case, and inside is a one piece bass clarinet with all the necessary parts. The problem is that the serial number only has four digits...
  2. Bass Clarinet Resistant Just Above the Break

    I play on an old Selmer Low C bass clarinet that my school owns. The instrument plays pretty well in all ranges except for just above the break. The range from B to the D just above the break is really resistant and hard to play in, especially with regards to dynamic control and tone quality...
  3. Bass Clarinet neck screw broken

    My bass clarinet has 2 screws to hold the neck in place. One of the screws (left side) broke off. I asked my band teacher and he says its fine and it doesn't actually hold the neck to the body. I'm still worried about it and what should I do? Should I go over to where i got the clarinet (ted...

  9. Accent BC742C Bass Clarinet minor issues

    Hi guys :) so I bought Accent's low C model, the BC742C, and the instrument itself seems awesome. Great intonation, tone, etc, but like most, also seems to need a couple adjustments out of the box. I was hoping you guys could help me figure some out. 1. The middle F# (just first finger) is...

    Hi there, I started bass clarinet few months ago. I bought a used Bundy from my repairman. He also gave me a student mouthpiece. Since I've been playing tenor sax for a few years and I use 6 to 7* tip opening on it, that student bass clarinet mouthpiece is too closed tip for me and has lots of...

    Hello all, I have two high school students who, for their all-region auditions, are required to play an altissimo E (3 ledger lines). I have tried the "cheater" fingering of the over-blown A-key and it just won't work. The actual fingering combination is also unsuccessful. Both instruments...
