  1. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello, fellow forum hornheads, I've been looking for durable, acoustically-responsive pad options for my old Jean Dumont/Martin Frères clarinet from the 60's. It's currently padded with cork for ring and registry keys, bladder for side trills and lower body cups. I'm sticking to Ferree's Tools...
  2. Cases
    Hi, anyone has recomendations for alto sax + clarinet + flute cases? I've been looking at the protec and it has been really attractive especially since you can use the flute and clarinet pouches as single cases essentially, but wanted to get some advice before I spend that much money. Using...

    Anyone has any experiences with Gigliotti Advantage mouthpieces? I'm thinking of picking one up and was wondering what the differences between the A1 and the AS1 was? Thanks!

    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...

    Hey all, I'm super excited to finally dive into the doubling world, and I've found a decent enough clarinet on Craigslist. You see, I was searching around Craigslist and Reverb for a Yamaha YCL-250, because based on some posts I've read here, and other articles, they work well enough for...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hey, guys. Been a couple of eventful years for me since I last logged on. It's good to see so many of your here and kickin'. I want to sell the old (~1960) Bb clarinet I played in high school. It's an F.E.Olds "Special" that certainly wasn't a pro model, but always played easily and sounded...

    Which Used Clarinet To Buy For 1400 € Hey Sax-people, :) I'm searching for good used clarinet for 1400 € for doubling in Big Band! Any ideas, models, types? Thank you!:mrgreen:

    Hey guys, I've been dumped on a show at the Albert Hall in London soon originally as a orchestral doubler on Bari and Clari but the arrangers have gone with mostly clarinet. It's an insane workout for a mostly sax guy with rusted chops! I've been given a passage here that's pacing along at 81...

    How would I go about taking care of a wood clarinet? I got a great deal on a Selmer Signet Special clarinet on ebay earlier this week. It's in great condition (no chips or cracks, corks and pads look good, and it plays with very little effort), but I'm still going to take it to my tech as I...

    This one: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?itemID=40914226 It looks like it might be a stencil of a 1910s Buffet C, or just one marked Buffet? Whoever bought it got a very nice deal.
  12. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Yesterday I had the chance to play a 1962's Buffet Crampon BC-20 Bes clarinet. The instrument recently had a check-up, and all pads looked and felt good (I did not perform a suction test, but everything spoke very easily). I'm in love with its tone, but intonation is slightly less good than my...

    Hi, I'm a High School musician who currently plays Saxophone(bari, tenor, alto, and sop), flute and bass clarinet. I'm currently trying to get my hands on a VERY cheap Bb soprano clarinet. since it would just be for screwing around at home, I was wondering if it would be smarter just get a...

    Reed Strength Hi, Can anyone answer the question why do clarinet reeds have different strengths and how does the strength affect the tone of the clarinet? I've tried searching google but had no success!! Thank you Libby
  15. What to Buy & Why: Reeds and Misc.
    Hi everyone, I am doing a project on the Bb Clarinet at college and was hoping I’d be able to gain opinions and knowledge from this forum to use in my work. I’d like to know if you prefer to play a wooden or plastic clarinet and why you prefer that material, for example the tonal quality, the...

    Hello clarinet peeps, I am a composer working on an EP. I only need one song recorded, then I am done. Everybody keeps promising to do it then disappears, it's frustrating. I have a solo piece for Clarinet in B flat that needs to be recorded. I have the sheet music and a digital mp3 of it. It's...

    Recently dropped and chipped my clarinet mouthpiece and I'm looking for suggestions for a replacement. I've been playing a Buffett R13 with a Vandoren B45 for about 6 years. Now that my B45 is broken I figured this would be a good time to upgrade. I'm going to go try the m13 and m15 models, but...

    I have been quite curious recently about clarinet design, as I have a variety of clarinets here from different periods to experience the changes over history and brand. I found pointers to a lot of great archival information which I have collected and post here: ARCHIVE POST BEGINS HERE Author...

    Been cleaning out mouthpiece collections and selling some, and became curious about whether I could explain the preferences that I have developed for certain mouthpieces on certain clarinets. I have attached a chart of mouthpiece exit bores (the diameter at the very end of the mouthpiece) and...

    I did some searching and did not really find any satisfying information on materials and process to fill holes (e.g. when relocating thumbrest, shifting a post, etc) on clarinets. I'm curious what folks do. On plastic clarinets, I have read that most folks just use ABS plumbing cements...makes...
