The image is so huge I can barely see it. I certainly don't see a case

With a Fobes Debut, a decent mouthpiece so I'm told...

An old Welsh song that I recently learned on recorder, mentally transposed to start on fingered C.
Quite happy with my tone today!

. Possibly some current players of baroque clarinet or chalumeau might try having the reed on top, but I haven't heard of any examples so far.
Ah yes HIP players probably would do that.

Some classical players still use double lip, and you can find videos online advocating it- for example, the maker Tom Ridenour likes it and refers to it as French embouchure.

I don't know what proportion of jazz players use double lip. I do use it myself and find single lip awkward.
I've watched that video before, I didn't realise he was playing with the reed on top! I thought double lip was still with the reed in the normal position, on the bottom.

I notice that classical players hold the instrument almost vertical, because of the way a reed instrument works. But jazz players tend to be portrayed holding it more horizontal. But when I do this the sound is weaker because the reed is being blown at a different angle due to the classic clarinet embouchure.
I know many players favour the double lip embouchure and this allows the player to hold the instrument higher. So is that where it comes from, the new orleans jazz era?


There are a lot of old clarinets on ebay, but I'm not sure it's a good idea, unless you have lots of cash to spend making it playable

Would an older clarinet like this need a full overall? I imagine new pads at least.

Found this image on Instagram yesterday.
I believe there's an Eb clarinet at the front there...

If you want a taragota for display purposes, you can find them for nothing being manufactured out of Pakistan out of some real nasty wood.
Why on earth would anyone want a non functional musical instrument? Pointless

They appear to be pretty decent clarinets! And it seems there are a few of them about.

I find some of the pictures are very large on my phone and I find myself having to scroll both ways to see it all. I always resize my photos out of habit
