Pair Eugene Thibouville Clarinets-Something Wrong
« on: July 09, 2020, 08:27:34 AM »
I have 2 Thibouville clarinets that came out of this case.  I cannot put either clarinet together.  There is a ring on the upper sections on both clarinets that won't let the barrel attach to it.  I am probably missing something here, but I can't figure it out.  Thank you for any help.

Try the mouthpiece directly into the upper joint.  The look like they have the integrated barrel.

Yeah it looks like someone was going to convert them to the normal configuration with a barrel but never did. I have an Eb I need to do that to as well. Just try the mouthpiece right in the upper joint and see how the intonation is.

Integrated barrel clarinets are rather rare! Great set of axes you got there. Unfortunately, with an integrated barrel your options for tuning are rather limited... How versatile is your embouchure???

I haven't played a clarinet in over 50 years, embouchure short, lol.
