Thank you for explaining. Do they have the same Boehm key system as
the clarinets that most of us play?

<><> The tone quality all depends upon the player, most often not
classically trained, and how they figure a way to play in an imitation
of a vocal style.

Are the techniques that I described (fluttering and puffed out cheeks,
expanded throat, glottal articulation, etc) standard techniques for
Turkish folk clarinet? Or was I seeing something unusual?
