Hi gang-
As an instrumental music teacher, I find the fact that I need to ask the
question a bit embarrassing, but here goes:

What, exactly, is the difference between a "basset horn" or "basset
clarinet" , and an alto clarinet? For that matter, why is it that alto
clarinet parts seem to be rather shunned in concert bands all around, even when
there might be personnel who could cover them?
