Well, I'm glad to know it's not just me. Sometimes I put my clarinet
together, and it's squeaky and stuffy, but then will be fine if I take it
apart and put it back together again, or rotate the bell some. Seems like I
should pay closer attention to where the pieces are when it's playing well.


As simple as it may sound, check carefully to insure the bridge key alignment is exactly in place. With the Buffets, it is possible to play with the bridge key out of alignment, all be it poorly. If things aren't quite right, take a look at the alignment. That may be as far at you need to look.
