Since joining KLARINET I have made some (I hope) positive changes in the
mouthpiece department, but I still have the "is it me or the combination of
reeds/mouthpiece" problem. I'm using van dorens (hardness 2) (there is only
one type avail here) on a C 85 120 Selmer with a B&H Emperor and playing
klezmer..........but is this an ideal combination? and as John says, who is
the expert on this? What's the advice? Is a 20key clarinet of any
significant advantage here?
