Wow! Glad to hear you're playing again!
Avoid burnout. Take up the Irish flute.  :)

It would take a player with particular tastes and money to spend to buy a clarinet decked out by an expert with particular tastes.

To make Windy happy, I made a nicer bell than the PVC version. It is made of the original bell plus half of another.
The old PVC bell is pictured, as well as the part I cut off the second bell.

I hate it when a seller gives a low price and then puts the shipping at $300!

I hope you answer, because I am thinking I've got to get a better G clarinet.
I love the tone of the hard rubber one I have. It is perfect for the kind of playing I do.
In spite of lots of work, I would not say that mine is spot on for intonation yet.

Did you notice that they were dancing to that! I wish the camera had panned around to catch that action.

People can make music with all sorts of sounds. And ya gotta love that the clarinet is so versatile as to allow someone to do such things with it.

Neat story! Congratulations, Andrea!
Thanks to Dibbs especially for the info. I didn't realize that intonation purpose for the T x0x fingering.

I love threads like this. Good job, guys. Greetings from Jakarta.

Having the original barrel glued on at the very edge wasn't sturdy. One doesn't need fancy materials to make a clarinet bell. I can't tell the difference in how this sounds, but it appears to be better in tune.

As Monopole said, “Where are the space age polymers or hard rubber compounds or something new entirely that brings clarinetting to the next level?”

The current Chinese hard rubber is not the same as the old French/USA hard rubber. In my opinion, the new Chinese hard rubber composite is about as good a material as one can get. We may be playing recycled Chinese tires, but it sounds so warm and dark. The thing that needs to go to the next level is attention to details in manufacturing, keeping the instruments consistent to specs for bore and things like the position and size of tone holes.
