  1. Beginner pieces?

    Hello guys, I have started my clarinet journey a week ago, and i was thinking of learning to play something simple enough in the following weeks, because mindless scale runs can get boring quickly :) Do you have any recommendations for classical pieces that are relatively easy and can help me...
  2. Continental Clarion Clarinet - 29591

    Hello, I am looking for some help with my metal body clarinet that I just picked up. It was used by the band at Fort Meade SD. It's black. I mean, it's not patina. I haven't tried very hard to remove this blackness. I think that the horn body is probably brass as there are a couple chip like...
  3. Is this Buffet Eefer as old as I think it is?

    So an auction I was watching ended, and I wasn't a bidder as I was in a wind quintet's concert listening to them. Link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/162959998230 My thoughts are that this Buffet is from the 1850s, but I'm not fully convinced I'm right. It has what I understand was the Buffet logo...
  4. C Clarinet Case

    (Do we really not have a cases subforum anywhere? I could swear we did.) So, I bought a trio of clarinets from an estate sale on the 8th, and have had them for about a week and a half now. I received, in no real order: A Selmer Radio Improved (I think? No model name visible. It's early L...

    Advice Needed for Purchasing Buffet R13 Clarinet

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum and so grateful to have this resource. My son is an aspiring clarinetist and I'm wanting to help him as much as I can. He started in 5th grade and has excelled with the instrument ever since. He's now in high school and we're looking to upgrade his current...
  6. J.C. Denner's birthday.

    Well, today's the birthday of Johann Christoph Denner, inventor of the Clarinet, and late 17th century woodwind maker. Coincidentally, its also my birthday, which is why I occasionally make a joke I was fated to play Clarinet. I actually got to play on a copy of a chalumeau made by his son at...
  7. John Ireland Fantasy Sonata

    What're your opinions on this recording?
  8. Is it safe to get a 1945 Buffet pre-R13 Eb soprano clarinet?

    I don't have much knowledge about Eb's but I'm looking to start playing. I found a refurbished 1945 pre-R13 Buffet for sale, but it's $945, so I want to be sure that it's worth it. Anyone who's played on this or a similar model: how's the tuning and tone? Is it risky to get such an old...
  9. Nice quality evenly faced mouthpieces certainly make a gigantic difference on Eefer...

    So as of about an hour and a half ago I got a new mouthpiece for my Eb in the mail and all I can say on it is WOW. It's loads better than the unevenly faced Vandoren B40 that was with it. While the fact that it's a good mouthpiece is what matters most to this, the mouthpiece is made by Greg...

    Clarinet Soft Pads

    RE: I have a clarinet and would like to make it sound like the sound of the Hindustani clarinet. I read Shankar mentions a soft rubber material in one of his videos but it doesn't go into further detail. Any information would be helpful.
  11. Maestro Mouthpieces

    Can anybody tell me about these maestro mouthpieces? They're priced relatively nicely at $60.00, but I can only find it for that price on Reverb (which states they're new). For the most part I am confused as to the naming scheme between these mouthpieces and whether or not they're quality...
  12. JeanJean Companion

    If you have studied the JeanJean Etudes, you might like this. I have composed an accompaniment companion for the 18 Etudes by Jeanjean. These accompaniments do not come with the clarinet part. That must be purchased separately from the publisher. These are intended as accompaniments for...
  13. Love songs for clarinets and piano

    My husband, David Carovillano, composed these four beautiful classical-pop ballads for clarinet and piano (one for each of E flat, B flat, A, and Bass Clarinet) and a sweet, reflective clarinet quintet. Here is the preview video for our album "Reflections". Let me know if you would like to...
  14. Vandoren V12 Reeds

    I normally play on Vandoren Traditional 3.5 strength (for Bb clarinet), but they tend to be quite inconsistent and I'm just not getting the tone quality I'm looking for. Is splurging on Vandoren V12 reeds worth it? Does it really affect sound all that much? And do they run harder than the...
  15. Looking at mics

    I play bass clarinet and soprano clarinet, and would like to start recording myself playing. Started to look into microphones only to realize there is a huge variety and I dont know what to choose, after a little research I believe a large condenser mic is recommended (correct if wrong), I am...

    Play in woodwind quintet? Here is a beautiful work, "Euphoria", by David Carovillano. Like it? Let me know if you would like to play it. http://www.maestroscorner.com/euphoria-for-woodwind-quintet/
  17. Wm. Lewerenz, St. Louis Clarinet mouthpiece

    So yesterday my mom was very nice to me as usual and bought a Clarinet for me at an estate sale while the band was riding buses to a football game- a 1936 Conn 444N, I'll type something up on that later. But it came with a Wm. Lewerenz, St. Louis Clarinet mouthpiece, made of marbled red and...
  18. Buffet clarinet cases

    Hello, Surfing on the web I found these two buffet clarinet cases that drawed my attention, but I can not find any other than just a pixeled exterior picture of the cases. I was wondering if any of you have these cases anywhere around, and send me pictures of their interior, pockets and the...
  19. Moral of the story: check what mouthpieces are with things. (in this case a Kaspar)

    Link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291778781249 I was mainly interested in that pamphlet, but read the description, which led me to notice the second mouthpiece with that was a Kaspar. So, I asked them for pictures of the mouthpieces, which let me confirm it was a Chicago Kaspar, with what looks like...
  20. Newly-Patented Neck-Strap to End Pain on Right Thumb

    I have been an engineering professor, avid amateur of ten musical instruments and serious inventor with eight U.S. Patents. One of the latest is Pat.No.7,655,853 dealing with the way to get rid scientifically of the always-present nagging pain in the right thumb, hand, elbow, shoulder or arm for...
