My clarinet has all of these extra keys, and I use them to differing exte=
nts.
I very rarely use the sliver key for C#/G#, but I have experimented with =
using
it in different situations. I have found the 3rd ring on the top joint to=
be
very useful in that it provides yet another alternate fingering for Eb/Bb=

(D#/A#). This fingering (1st finger and 3rd finger l.h.) is very useful f=
or
going from C to Eb in the chalemeau or G to Bb in the clarion. I also fin=
d the
l.h. Ab/Eb key to useful. In my own experience, I have found that these e=
xtra
keys offer a wealth of alternate fingerings that aren't possible without =
them.
I also think they make some of the more standard alternates a little bett=
er.
But that's just my opinion :-)
