Subj: Re: Tuning the Orchestra
Date: Mon, 15 Dec 1997 13:26:22 -0500

I still think that it sucks that the note just _has_ to be an
A...especially in the case of the low clarinets, I find that to be a
really unreliable tuning note for me. (I usually have to lip up my E/B
and F/C by about five cents on any clarinet...)

I figure most professional clarinetists agree (but I'm not sure). Is it
possible that right before the orchestra tunes, the clarinets don't run
over to the oboist and say "Quick, gimme a B flat before we start tuning!"
or some thing similar? ^_^
