  1. Clarinet
    Hi everyone, I am looking to obtain more information about my bass clarinet. I've always played it and love the massive sound. It's a wooden Buffet Crampon bass clarinet that goes down to low Eb. It's written PROFESSIONAL on the upper chimney under the logo. The serial number is #21937. Here...

    What's the difference between these mouthpieces? Has anyone tried them both in the same opening? I'm asking because I have a Fobes San Francisco HB (2.00 mm opening) that I really like. It's currently my favorite mouthpiece, and I love the sound that I get from it, but I sometimes wish it were...

    So i recently got a school rental bass clarinet, and the tenon corks are very worn, but are still playable. I was not sure what thickness of cork i should get. I found some small sheets that are 3/64" thick, and i wasn't sure if these were too small. Also, it is a Selmer Bundy Low Eb if that...

    I am a huge fan of Karsten's necks on saxophone. He makes some of the best custom necks. I am keen to get a new neck for my bass clarinet but i have not seen much comments/reviews about his bass clarinet necks. Does anybody here have one and care to comment? Thanks
  5. Tips and Techniques
    Hello everyone! I am a high school freshman that's just starting marching band and, sadly, I need tips on how to play notes higher than a high C for bass clarinet. I'm playing a B.C. from Yamaha and a 2 reed from Vandora, I've checked out other posts but they were only for high F (5th line) and...
  6. Clarinet
    I've recently restored a Vito bass clarinet. Got it cheap as it needed overhauling. It came without a case. New cases cost a lot so I'm looking around to see if there's anything I can adapt/ make a case from. It's a one piece so that makes things a bit harder. Does anyone know of anything I can...
  7. Clarinet
    I primarily play bari and recently got a professional Kessler Custom tenor and have been enjoying it for a while. However, after seeing that Kessler just released a new batch of Midnight Low C bass clarinets, I'm thinking that getting one of those things would be a better investment than a...

    Does anyone know of a repair shop offering a Low C bass clarinet extension? SoCal is preferred as well as any in the US. Thanks.
  9. Multi Sax!
    Hey y'all! I'm primarily a baritone sax player and I've been using the Kessler Solist custom bari and it's been great (I highly recommend using it by the way)! I've recently been learning about doubling. I do know that sax players usually double on other woodwinds such as flute or clarinet, and...

    Has anyone tried both of these on bass clarinet? If so, could you tell me how they compare? I'm currently playing on a tenor sax Legere Signature 2.75 (that I've been playing since March) and I'm looking to get a backup. I've tried a number of different types of cane reeds on bass clarinet...
  11. Clarinet
    I recently picked up a Centered-Tone era (50's) Selmer Bass Clarinet. It was obviously well cared for and, after a few minor adjustments, it feels and plays great. It also has great intonation. Throughout its range, most notes are within 5 cents of the average tuning and none is off by more...
  12. Clarinet
    I just received today, after a 5 week wait, the bass clarinet I had bought on Ebay back at the end of January. I bought it on a whim, if you will (chorus sings Whim Away, Whim Away), as I have wanted to find an instrument that would be fairly easy to learn due to its similarity with sax. I...
  13. Clarinet
    Hello, I recently bought a Yamaha YCL 211 II bass clarinet and I'm very content . The only thing that is a bit strange is the placement of the thumb rest. For me it's just to low. There would be space to adjust it to a higher position, but the actual thumb rest doesn't allow for a lot of upward...
  14. Clarinet
    I play T, A, S and enjoy all three greatly. I feel I have a good command of them. Since I only play for my own enjoyment now that age has made going out at night to jam in bars a counter-productive activity (the candle burned right into a heart attack 3 years ago) I would like to add another...
  15. Clarinet
    Hello, I'm just researching the options to buy a bass clarinet. I see there are shorter (lowest note Eb) and longer (resp. C) variants. Obviously the big divider here is the price. But if price was no issue what are the pros and cons of each choice? Maybe in terms of sound or mechanical...
