  1. TrueTone

    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...

  4. Loop pedal composition

    I picked up my Dad's clarinet at age 15 when the other teens were playing guitar. Having a different instrument then strings in party jam sessions gave me an opportunity to add to the music in a meaningful way. I started playing lap steel guitar when I was about 25. A few years ago I discovered...
  5. Broken clarinet mouthpiece?

    So I recently got a Vandoran B45 mouthpiece for my clarinet (I accidentally dropped my old one and broke it) and it sounds pretty airy. At fist I thought it was because it was new, then my reeds, and so on, but I got new reeds and it still sounds super airy. I tested it against another...

    Hello, knowledgable folks. My son is a freshman in high school, playing in an honors (higher level) band. His private instructor recommended this specific mouthpiece as an upgrade from the Vandoren B45. He said he has ordered it from someone in New Zealand in the past, but I can't find the...

    Yamaha CS series versus SE series

    I've been reading everything I can about the CE and SE series of Yamaha clarinets. According to the Yamaha web site: "The CS series has a shorter and narrower inner bore taper followed by a longer straight section which allows the clarinet to deliver a straight, concentrated and clear tone. The...

    Finding other musicians

    How do I go about finding violinists, cellist, and/or pianists who play at my level (intermediate), i.e., want to play classical, i.e chamber, classical, romantic, etc. with other musicians.
  11. Is this any good? It seems so...but I'm not sure.

    Hi! I just bought this, I'll try to overhaul it and give it to a flute-playing relative as a Christmas gift. But whatever, do you have any info? I've been searching and it looks like Carl Fischer imported clarinets under his brand, some were good and others not so much...

    Greetings

    Hello, My name is Marty Matisoff. I started playing the clarinet again after a 43-year hiatus. I was surprised to learn just how strong muscle memory is. I'm looking forward to the day when I can play in a trio or an ensemble.
  13. An 'A Clarinet' that measures 26.5 inches?

    I have just bought a Boosey & Hawkes Emperor clarinet in a charity shop. I got it serviced in a shop near where I live. I recognised the wood as African Blackwood before I bought it (I used to be a flute maker) and the shop claimed that the clarinet is also at least 63 years old with sterling...
  14. Quality cheap Eb Clarinet?

    Hey guys :) I didn't see this addressed anywhere, so I'll ask. Are there any good quality cheap Eb clarinets around? I've seen a few companies like Band Director's Choice, Paolo Mark, Barrington, and several unbranded, which I assume I should stay away from. It'd be my first Eb, (I play Bass...

  16. 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...

  18. Does this case cover fit my clarinet case?

    Last year for my birthday, my husband wanted to buy me a cover for my clarinet case. This was not as simple as he'd hoped because there were very few clarinet case covers that supposedly fit my Buffet double clarinet attaché case. There are very few pics of double case covers and none show the...
