Bert,
Since you've "been on this planet 18 years" you haven't been
around the block too much. Bass clarinet parts in bass clef are very
common in the orchestra world. I would say that half of the parts I've
played are in bass clef or a mix of treble and bass clef. If you're
serious about the bass clarinet, pick up the "Symphonic Repertoire for the
Bass Clarinet" by Michael Drapkin and/or start collecting bass clarinet
parts. Then there's the French and German treble/bass clef notation -
check the archives on this topic.

Also, if we (clarinetists) think all these ledger lines are bad,
look at a flute part. The one thing I can't stay is getting a bass cl.
part with extended range to low C and it's written is treble clef. It's
much easier to read if it's in bass clef.

Dan
