Some time ago I bought a Selmer Series 9 Bb clarinet [from 1964] which had=20
been recently overhauled and is in excellent condition.=20
However the throat Bb, and to a much lesser extent the long b natural, sound=
s=20
=E2=80=98throaty=E2=80=99, at least much more so than on my R13 or on most c=
larinets I have=20
tried.
I wonder is this is a common characteristic of this model. I understand that=

Abe Galper markets a speaker tube which improves the Bb on the R13. Perhaps=

someone markets a similar item for the Selmer Series 9 or can offer another=20
solution.
I have tried altering the pad height and bevelled the cork pad, with no=20
improvement.
Any suggestions?
