 Re: Resistance across the clarinet family

Interesting observations, so far . . .

My Selmer Alto has a double register key mechanism and does not exhibit any "stuffiness" . . . at least by my observation . . . so I presume that it was well set up and regulated while being re-built prior to my purchase. I have played Bass, Contra-Alto, and Contra-Bass in the past, but so many years ago that any memory of relative resistance is "lost in antiquity," so to speak.

Like someone else mentioned, our Community Band Director is a brass player . . . so why should he know anything about resistance unless it's just an attempt to "sell" (or persuade) me on playing Bass!
