 Would you be buried with your clarinet?
Author: coasten1 
Date:   2006-06-21 18:09

Kinda sounds morbid, but just curious if anyone would want to be buried with their instrument?

I suppose that if you believe that if you have it with you, you will be able to play it in the after life.

If I had someone at the moment to will it to, knowing they would use it and keep playing, I'd do that.

If people buried their clarinets with themselves, nobody would ever be able to play them again. I would personally rather pass on my clarinet to an aspiring musician or my kid or something. Why stop the music?

Since the difficulty of playing the clarinet has buried the hopes and dreams of many players, it would be somewhat ironic to be buried with your clarinet.

"...Here lies Arthur Tealson -
He finally found a reed -
That let him tongue with speed,
But still couldn't play the Nielsen..."

Burials are expensive enough without adding the cost of a good clarinet :-)

Fine comments and GBK's "limerick" . I had thot that after the recovery of boats, jewels etc-etc, unused by any old Egyptian et al rulers, our belief in an "active" after-life had been relegated to just "hopes". I still have "some" faith, but try to be "realistic". A can of worms?? Don

Thanx, Mark, Don

I'd only be buried with my clarinet if the instrument was as blown out as I was!

How about a coffin made out of old clarinet wood? Or if you want to be environmentally friendly you could get the "Greenline coffin". It would be the ultimate low-pitch clarinet: six feet under A=440.

I love my clarinet but not to the point that I would want to be buried with it. I agree with some of the comments posted -- I would rather pass it on. I don't think instruments are necessarily meant to be "immortalized" (for lack of a better word) by putting them somewhere that restricts them from ever being played again. Besides, instruments develop with experience.

While practice might make perfect, this much I fear
That too much practice might offend my neighbor's ear,
Thus if they had their wish, I would be fated
to be buried with my clarinet, or cremated.

Nah ... I'm gonna be frozen and then thawed out later. Hope bits don't fall off when I'm out of it ...

(which is about as stupid a remark I could get away with on a really daft thread)

Without music, the world would be grey, very grey.

This is actually somewhat timely
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060622/ap_on_fe_st/clarinet_casket_2

Roger Busdicker went out on a high note. When Busdicker, often seen playing his ebony-and-silver clarinet, died last week at the age of 88, his daughters thought it befitting to have his cremated remains buried in the instrument.

Well, I'm not too worried about what I'll play in the after-life. If I go to heaven I'll get a perfect set of matched buffets that never plays out of tune and never cracks.

If I go elsewhere they'll make me play sax!

Yes, when I go the clarinet goes with me. Not the good one of course, but a plastic one with a decent mouthpiece and reed. I've been irritating the neighbors my whole life. The after life is no time to stop.

If Paganinis and Kreislers had wanted to buried with their violins,

there would not have been any good violins left.

No. I'd rather leave any instruments for others to play.

I have seen the movie The Red Violin. One of the early characters slept with his instrument. Good movie.

I might want to be burried with my clarinet.. I mean it's my best friend (I'm serious with all this)(My ycl-34 and I just celebrated our 6 month anaversary and I actually got us an annaversary present)(His name's Merlin)(All my friends name our instruments). But, the only other thing I might do is pass it on to one of my younger aspiring-musician relatives or friend's relatives... this would allow Merlin to live on in hearts for much longer, and they could pass it down or something. Never really thought about it berfore... I think I might [huh]

If I died early, I'd want to give it to my band director to give to some one who reminded her of me. As completely morbid as that sounds.

If I got to live to a ripe old age, I would still give the clarinet to my H.S. band. I'd will it to anyone who wants to get out of the small town and really pursue the dream of becoming a clarinetist. It's a rare thing around here, believe me. You get the feeling constantly that being from such a small town, there's no way you could ever be as good as kids from NYC with more money and opportunities, as silly as that might sound. The decision over whether or not this person was completely serious would probably lie with the band director. And I would ask my family to upkeep it in the meantime (and I'd leave money).

If I had a son or daughter who wanted to play it professionally, I would will it to them if I hadn't already bought them one.

Certainly I wouldn't, but some years ago a friend asked me to overhaul his pair of L7's. He had used them for years as a professional orchestral musician and sounded wonderful.
When I had a look at them I found them to be in terrible condition, with woolly leaking pads, noisy mechanisms and poor adjustment. He wasn't a great believer in maintenance but was very good at compensating for the lack of it. I took them back to better than new condition, and for me they played wonderfully, but he said that they didn't sound right any more.
Sadly, he died shortly after that and his beautifully overhauled L7's went into the box with him. Sad, they would have served some aspiring player very well.

In India, the family builds a pyre, sets it aflame with the body on top of it. This could be done to me using all of my hundreds of old reeds.

There once was a fellow named Sneed
Who searched for the ultimate reed
He tried a Legere, and found it quite fair,
But died since and now has no need.

The horn that I use every day.
Is a 55-year-old Buffet.
I don't need special plating
Or 6 months in waiting
To find one that just plays OK.


With so many models to pick,
Choosing one is no easy trick.
Hyacinthe Klose?
He played a Buffet.
With great tone and technique that was slick.

I've tried several different Buffets
But couldn't find one that would play
Quite as well as my MoBa
(at least when I'm sober),
So I guess I'll just call it a day.

With price tags that will make you swoon,
New MoBa horns by Backun.
They claim to fix tuning,
With no cutting or pruning.
The cost? Like 3 weeks in Cancun

I'm not rich like an oil tycoon,
And I hate to be so picayune.
But when friends spend their loot,
It's so hard to refute,
The claims made by Morrie Backun

I met a young man, just last June.
He told me about his bassoon.
He was very vocal,
'Bout his gold plated bocal.
Claimed EVERYTHING now played in tune.

You don't have to be Daniel Boone,
To scout out some rhymes for Backun.
Just take pencil or pen,
Snack on rock cornish hen,
And write by the light of the moon



...GBK (who happily uses MoBa barrels)

Pardon me if I'm myopic
But I wish we would get back on topic.
If your eternal goal
Is to lie in a hole
With your horn, please be more philanthropic.

(Edited for profundity.)

I've instructed my wife, if she outlives me, to get as much as she can for my horns.

A topic which comes up quite often,
Do your horns go with you in your coffin?
It's morbid I know,
To put them below.
But at least your hard reeds will all soften.

There are several vendors today
Who will "pre-select" your Buffet
They say it's quite needed
That their word be heeded
or else you'll get one that won't play!

(I've had the pleasure of playing some terrific Buffets in my time - a killer R13 in the 70's, and a very nice Prestige in the 90's - Just having some Buffet-bashing fun).

Even in Voodoo New Orleans, we don't bury musicians' instruments along with the musician. A marching jazz band plays some hymns on the way to the cemetery, the body is interred, and the band launches into "Didn't He Ramble." Let somebody else ramble on with the clarinet. Burying it might put the HEX on you!

Looking at the thread title I couldn't help thinking about those clarinetists who believe in "blown out" instruments.
Assuming these instruments are dead should their players go into the clarinet tomb with their clarinet.

Perhaps the title should be rephrased "Would you have your clarinet buried with you" :)
