All about Clarinets / Re: No Branding on Clarinet or Serial Number
« on: July 26, 2021, 11:07:38 AM »
Trying to work out what the label on the case says, it looks German, like Echt Vulkan Flute

It says Echt Vulkan Fiber.  Genuine Vulcanised Fibre in English.  A board material something like cardboard impregnated with rubber.  It was often used to make suitcases.  It may still be for all I know.
Ah, interesting

An attempt at this Cat Stevens song, from memory (used to have to sing it in assembly at junior school)

All about Clarinets / Saxonette?
« on: June 29, 2021, 04:56:21 PM »
I was browsing Wikipedia about clarinets and I found a link to a video of Alphonse Pichou playing the rare Saxonette, basically a Bb clarinet with upturned bell.

This is my father's day gift this year. I've never tried a brass instrument before. It's all about the buzz!

All about Clarinets / Carnival of Venice
« on: June 23, 2021, 10:46:08 AM »
Inspired by Trent Hamilton's numerous brass videos in which he plays Carnival of Venice a lot I thought I'd try a bit of it on clarinet.
By jove it works, though you can forget the fast passages...😜

Trading Post / Re: Good stuff on ebay

McIntyre time folks!  Two are listed at give-away prices on Ebay.  "Buy It Now", too.  You might wait a while to see one again, and next time, they won't be this cheap, I suspect.

All about Clarinets / About the alto
« on: May 26, 2021, 07:41:04 AM »
I just watched this video on the alto by Michael Lowenstern aka Earspasm Music. I'm curious if all altos are designed that way...

All about Clarinets / Re: New Here.... Contra Alto Clarinet
« on: May 25, 2021, 12:10:29 AM »
The order from highest pitch to lowest would be:

Soprano Clarinet
Alto Clarinet
Bass Clarinet
Contra Alto Clarinet
Contrabass Clarinet

Of course there are other clarinets too, but at least in my opinion, those are the “big five”.  :)
Thanks!

I thought alto was just short for contra alto ...or are they seperate instruments?
Entirely different. Bass clarinet is one octave lower than the soprano clarinet.
Likewise, the contra alto is one octave lower than the alto.

The contra alto is pretty much the last clarinet you can reasonably play sitting down; the straight contrabass need a 7 foot tall player or they need to stand up.
So where does the alto sit?

After learning this on recorder, playing by ear, I decided to pick up the clarinet again. And I'm glad I did!
