Just how many pieces would call for a D clarinet? I have been
thinking of getting one in the future, but I am not sure that
the number of pieces requiring it would warrant such a purchase.

Also, I was wondering about if one person has a D clarinet, and
the other has an Eb, when 2 of these beasts are required (I
believe Mahler does require 2 in one piece) does it cause more
problems than it is worth?

I wouldn't buy that D until you've got a job that will allow you to use
it....every couple of years or so. ;-)

Most of us transpose. Paul Garner, the Associate/Eb player in Dallas has a
very nice Buffet D clarinet. It's a good clarinet...and it's played by a
good player. No problems.

Hope all is well.
