All about Clarinets / Cader Idris
« Last post by LarryS on June 15, 2022, 07:39:49 AM »
An old Welsh song that I recently learned on recorder, mentally transposed to start on fingered C.
Quite happy with my tone today!
Yamaha 4C mpc, Legere 2.5 EC reed

Just a guess, but I think it's probably a Buffet E11.  I haven't come across any serial number lists for the E11, so can't help you there.


Dave has some pretty good Buffet info in this thread - https://clarinetpages.info/smf/index.php?topic=1676.0

I have a clarinet which has no branding on it. It only says, Made in Germany, and has a number: 1206894 on it. The mouthpiece is plastic and was purchased separately. The clarinet appears to be made of wood.

Make and Model lists and research / Jupiter JCL 631 ii with a backpack case
« Last post by DypfrystBram on June 09, 2022, 10:35:48 AM »
Hi, community.
I am wondering if this case is authentic or not?
I only managed to find cases that open the other direction.
It has a zip and back straps.

I have no recollection of where I found it but I am wondering if someone elaborate on any info that might be different if it is out of the ordinary.
I am good at reverse searching items to identify them but this has be stumped.

Thanks for the time.

All about Clarinets / Re: need replacement lower joint for VSP
« Last post by JC on June 07, 2022, 08:37:03 AM »
I've tried another lower joint that did not work - Noblet 27 from 1973 - my VSP upper joint would only go in about two thirds of the way. Phil, you're thinking a Vito, how about a V40 from 1991, that's about the same year my VSP was made.  Thanks to everyone for the advice; I may end up just getting another VSP and using the orphaned upper joint for spare parts.

. 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.

He's playing with the reed on the bottom. I only mentioned playing with it on top because it shows that double lip must have come before single lip. 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.

You are probably best off making it yourself, that is what i had ended up doing for a gloritone.  It looks close to how it should and at least to my ear sounds good after some fine tuning.
If you were able to find one, which i doubt, it probably would cost more than machining it yourself or sending out to have one made.  That is if you have the ability and tools necessary.

Quote from: kehammel

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 believe that embouchure and angle variations must all be tuned to the individual, as each of us has distinctly different anatomy and muscle behavior. It's helpful to be aware of all these variations as a map of the territory to explore. Then, let your ear (and endurance) be your guide.
