 RE: Extraneous Clicking- for Ben

BEn, if your keys are clicking too much, then you need to investigate. Anywhere that metal could touch wood (or resonite)or another key, there should be cork attached to the key. The other place that makes a lot of noise is the keywork for the left hand full tube notes. There are pegs that go into the right hand keys, and if they are loose at all, you will be rattling all over the place. If that is the problem, one trick is to wrap a little bit of pad cleaning paper over the peg before you isert it into the hole. That tightens up the hole and also prevents metal on metal contact. I don't know how much of a problem that is on your clarinet but mine is 40 years old and is a relatively loose fit, so I need the paper.
