  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    When I wanted to play saxophone in early high school, the music teacher steered my parents away from buying/renting a saxophone and they ended up buying a clarinet and I took clarinet lessons for a few years. But I wanted to play saxophone! It took until my late thirties before I bought a...
  2. Clarinet
    Hello, before some months I bought a G rudolf uebel German system wooden clarinet for 550€. It's in great condition but I don't know if it's worth that much. The seller said that he had bought it for 1000€, could that be real? Do I have a bad clarinet on my hands or a intermediate-professional...
  3. Clarinet
    Hey everyone, I'm primarily a saxophonist, but have been playing clarinet for several years now and can get a pretty good tone and intonation throughout most of the range of the instrument. However, I've noticed that I have to lip up and tighten significantly to keep the instrument from...
  4. Other Woodwind Repair, Maintenance & Modification
    . Do metal clarinets use the same pads as the more common clarinets? I recently got my Rene Dumont repaired and they don't seal so well.
  5. Clarinet
    I’ve been looking for this clarinet I bought at goodwill everywhere and I’ve only found the mouthpiece for around 100$ Could anyone tell me what it’s worth?
  6. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    I wrote this in 2021 for a collaboration with my brother Art (piano) in Saint Paul, MN and Pete Effamy (clarinet) in the UK, and me on alto.
  7. Clarinet
    I've commented before that I sometimes see clarinet players in my community band use neck straps. I've even witnessed a band member using a strap with an Eb clarinet! But I couldn't remember having seen any pros using a strap. But here we see the great Ricardo Morales using a neck strap in his...
  8. Multi Sax!
    Hello, I currently own three instruments - a soprano sax, a tenor sax, and a clarinet. The soprano to me is the most fun to play and I spend the most time on it, though I am aware it lacks the versatility of the other instruments. My favourite music to play is Dixieland/Traditional jazz...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Clarinet
    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!
  12. 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...
  13. Clarinet
    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...
