 Re: Review: Ridenour low-C bass clarinet

Hi Dave S!

There is a Kohlert bass clarinet now residing in St. Louis that I've worked on for various reasons that also has a low C extension. The wood extension was added by the legendary late Glen Johnston in Hollywood and the keys were made and installed years later by Nick Spirito of Long Beach, CA. The wood in that instrument is the finest and hardest possible and the sound is completely resonant, perhaps better than any others I've heard. The tuning needed some work but it is quite good now. One thing I revised was the register key mechanism so that it is reliable and I also extended the low keys a little for a short fingered player. No wonder you like yours!
