salzo -

Bonade had a receding chin. To compensate, he played with the clarinet almost vertical. So did Marcellus and Gigliotti. Double lip is problematic with the instrument in this position.

Gigliotti said he preferred his tone when he played double lip, but couldn't endure the pain. Instead, he brought his upper lip down and tucked it tight against his upper teeth, pressing so hard that his teeth rested only lightly against the mouthpiece (and he used famously stiff reeds).

I play double lip. When I'm not in top; shape or play a lot, I put a small piece of chamois cut from an old swab over my upper teeth. Keith Stein had a silver cover for his upper teeth. It was quite thin and bridged the gap between his two front teeth.

We'll have to agree to disagree abut Reginald Kell. I think he was a great musician who happened to play clarinet, and I love his tone.

Claire -

Go to a dentist or plastic surgeon who specializes in wind players. It's a very minor process to reduce the size of the frenulum.
