So-called "full boehm" clarinets are an extension of the conventional boehm system:

They're not very popular these days but Selmer Paris made quite a few in the past. Here is an example: http://www.clarinetsdirect.biz/Selmer-K6190.html

I donít understand it. Thereís literally no reaosn the full boehm isnít standard.

Almost all alto, bass, and larger have the low Eb and articulated G#. Itís not a special feature on those. In fact, itís very difficult to find an alto or bass that ISNT ďfull boehm ď

Maybe the FB is too long, heavy, or unwieldy? Who knows

Ah, I just noticed the C hole has a ring!
