Make and Model lists and research / Re: Silver Penzel Mueller Clari-Met
« on: November 18, 2020, 02:15:37 PM »
There's a little bit of information on the Clari-Met at The Clari-Met is a double wall, is supposed to be silver alloy, and pre-1925-ish.
Pictures are always appreciated.

Welcome aboard.
Fascinating site,I added it to the links section of my blog

An old African American spiritual that I originally learned on recorder ages ago. I know it by heart so I thought I'd play it on the licorice stick. Good to play slow stuff, good practice.

I have a native American flute, but I rarely play it because it is very limiting.

search for "lead sheet" rather than "sheet music".  And try to find one for Bb instruments.

Find out how to take a screen shot on your computer (search it). That way if you come up with an image on your screen, you can print it even if it is not intended for print. I've "scored" some good songs that way.
Yes I do screen shots a lot (I'm a phone user, very rarely do I use a PC)

The thumb-Bb is notorious, as Dibbs noted. It's a dual-function key, and thus a compromise. A number of factors may help to dial it in. First of all, clean the metal tone hole (the register key stem) because it may be partly obstructed by debris including possible fibers from your swab. .
Ah I did not use the thumb key in this piece. At the moment I am staying in the low register. Not really used the register key much. But I have looked and it is clean (I check all the keys pads snd screws every now and then)

There are some places I've seen that give you a taste but charge for the rest. I have found a few places that have some selection of more popular free stuff. You can try:

This place has some freebies but if you want to shell out about 50 bucks or so it seems you can get a ton of sheet music. 4 CDs full.
Ah I used to use 8notes but it is riddled with spam now, terrible site.

Anyone know where I can get free sheet music? How long is it before a piece becomes public domain?
I want to play Misty by Erroll Garner but I play by ear. So far I can play the main theme by listening to YouTube videos but I haven't got round to the second phrase yet. Having it on sheet would make sure I'm playing the right notes.

That middle A is always a bit weak as is the Ab.  The Bb with the speaker key is even worse.  That one is notoriously the worst note on the clarinet. 

Oh good I'm glad its not just me!

A piece from the James Rae book. The tempo is marked Jazz Waltz Tempo, whatever that is...
My high A is weak. Probably weak embouchure because I don't play enough.
