New Ridenour Aurea Clarinets
« on: November 01, 2021, 08:34:58 PM »
On the Clarinet side of my world.

Ridenour Clarinet Products and Wm Thomas Ridenour picked out a matched set (A & Bb) of his Brand New Lyrique Aurea Clarinets.  Not only do they look beautiful, Silver Plated Keys with Gold Posts, they play like a dream!  Warm, Dark and Euro-Sounding, Without a doubt the best designed, playing clarinets on the market.  Sent in a beautiful custom logo ProTec double case, but seen here in my Marcus Bona Triple Case, sharing room with my Eb.

Very pretty! I love the color contrast with the gold posts and silver keys.

Gorgeous clarinets- a beautiful instrument gives one a confidence boost when performing, I believe!
If you ain't got 'em, that's why you need 'em...

Not quite sure what you mean, but there's no reason that hard rubber clarinet can't have silver plated keys. You see silver keys across clarinets of all materials, from cheap Chinese plastic to wood to hard rubber.

When I first started playing clarinet I didn't know that hard rubber was a material used in the making of clarinets. It seemed...odd. I know better now of course.

Hardrubber has sulfur, and with the time it´s loosing this sulfur. And sulfur makes the silver quickly black.
Maybe today the hardrubber has another composition, but the older for shure. That´s the reason not to carry new hardrubber mouthpieces in the case of a silverplated instrument

I have silver plated ligatures that I keep full-time on 3 different HR mouthpieces, and often in the case with HR clarinets and they aren't blackening.
