I have measured partials of my clarinet throat B flat (very bad tone,
without "long" fingering) using a software called "Specrtum Analyzer" for

here are the results:

root: 409.2 Hz
partial #3: 1227 Hz
partial #5: 2046.33 Hz

very close to perfect armonicity, I believe.

These results are similar to other measurements I made some months ago.
