  1. Help! Advice Needed!

    Hello, everyone! So I've been playing soprano clarinet for 2 and a half years now, and I'm pretty serious about it. I'm in 8th grade and the first chair at my school. I've done well in All-region competitions (2nd chair in my region), and currently play a used Buffet R13. However, my private...
  2. Looking for a clarinet mouthpiece to buy

    Hi there, I'v been playing tenor and soprano saxophone for a few years. I delved into bass clarinet less than two years ago but haven't practiced it much. Recently I started playing clarinet methodically (with my woodwind instructor) and I'm hoping to grow in this new path. I have a Signet...
  3. Is this a good choice for middle schooler?

    Hello all, My daughter is in her 3rd year playing clarinet and absolutely loves it! I've read many great posts here and others to identify quality upgrades from her plastic Vito. I somewhat impulsively purchased (online) what appears to be a really clean Selmer Signet Special for around...

  5. Are vintage instruments practical for everyday use?

    I have a question I would like to ask the smart people here on WF. I'm buying a new clarinet- upgrading from a plastic Buescher model I've had since 6th grade to a Buffet R13, and while shopping around I've noticed that many Buffet clarinets labelled as 'vintage' or 'pre-R13' are much cheaper...

  9. Is this a Clarinet or the skeletal remains of an instrument? It's a mystery to me?

    Straight up, I'm not a musician but I have a question that I thought this forum might answer. I recently picked up an old instrument that I thought was a clarinet. It has a nice old case with crocodile trim. The only mark I could find is a crest stamped into the mouthpiece with "Henri Selmer...

  11. Looking for a mouthpiece...

    I think the title says it all, right? Currently I own Yamaha 250 Student Model (basic, run of the mill beginner Clarinet) with the 4C mouthpiece that came with it. Lately I've been really airy, and the sound quality has just decreased over time. I was told by a judge at a local solo contest...
  12. Vintage Couesnon

    Good day to all. :) I received a gift yesterday from a dear friend. It's a Couesnon & Cie "C" clarinet. I do not know much about the company, though. I was told that it is likely from the late 20's/early 30's. Is it true there are no records for serial numbers? The only marking on this...

  14. "First" Sonata for Clarinet & Piano (but with accordion)

    This Rondo is the third movement of the Clarinet-Piano sonata by the composer Theodore Gouvy in 1875. Apparently it is claimed (according to the notes from the publisher anyway) to be "the first clarinet sonata (if you don't count Weber's Grand Duo) written by a renowned romantic composer" and...

  16. Unknown clarinet age

    I have dug out an old clarinet, which my dad says is at least 60 years old. It is a Boosey and Hawkes Regent, serial number 157841, but I can't find that number on any tables. Does anyone know, or can have a rough huess on its age?

    Can you ID this Noblet?

    From what I can gather from the diamond-shaped logo and the ND in the logo, this is a Model 45, but the serial number doesn't match anything I've seen: 30206 Any help somebody could give me would be appreciated! I will probably bring it somewhere to get reconditioned, as it's been sitting...
  18. clarinet clip on mics

    I think I'm posting this in the right place. My duo has been experimenting with mics and I want to use a clip on mic because I want to move around a lot (not be constrained with standing in one place by a stationary mic) and I am terrified of attaching a pic-up mic to my barrel (because I am...

    So close I can taste it...

    I have just lucked into a Selmer professional quality Mazzeo system clarinet. It belongs to a professional musician father of a friend of mine, and he is liquidating all of his non-plateau clarinets due to his suffering from the shakes and his inability to securely seat his fingers on the tone...
