I quit my rock band today. Going back to my clarinets. Every single one of 'em!

For sure. If I ever switch to plastic reeds, it will be Lègére for sure.

Staying with cane as long as still grows though . . . . .

Yeah Dave.

 Either that was a good old fashioned bidding war or we have to re-think the value of antique clarinets.

Good for you Dave!

I've been stuck on alto sax (happily).  :)

Wow, that looks good!  What key is that in? I know nothing about these . . . .

Well, this is different. Just like other instruments he has dreamed up!

Well, I found the old Walton today. I think I know why it's such a dog and I think I can fix it!

This thing is fun!  From what I remember from the Walton, this Clarke plays much better. Playing "over the break" is almost effortless. The conical bore may have something to do with it.

Ok, so I'm going to give it a go again!  I ordered a new Clarke Sweetone in D. My previous attempt was with an old Walton's brass model with a body that's a bit out of round.

Updates (and of course, pics) will follow. The goal here is to learn to play chromatically and take the instrument more seriously than I have initially.   Stay tuned !!

Yes. I always thought that piano and clarinet compliment each other well. "Discovering" new composers on a personal level is a great thing too. Malcolm Arnold  . . . . .

I purchased the one with the "Backun style" ringless bell and barrel. Even with the insane shipping it was still the cheapest option (and the best looking  ;D). I have a feeling the one with metal rings might be more crack resistant in the long run, however when one of my barrels cracked the seller was happy to send me two replacements.

Jared, I just want to thank you (and Windy) for the time and effort that both of you have put into these instruments. Your YT vids are great and I have subscribed to your channel.

Looks good Phil!

Yamaha 4C is what I have. Can't say if it's good or bad, I know nothing about mpcs, but its better than the stock mpc that came with the clarinet.

Oh, it's good. They just get no respect for some reason. I just kind of "re-discovered my old "Geo M Bundy" 3 piece. I like it.
