 Re: Chinese low c bass clarinet ultimate test

About seven or eight (?) years ago when Tom Ridenour came out with his original hard-rubber low-C bass clarinet model (which is not quite as good as the current model), I tried the prototype and decided to buy it. This was basically the generic Chinese bass clarinet we're talking about here. I too was seduced by its low price and the generally adequate playing qualities. But it had a few intonation issues I couldn't completely correct, and after I heard a recording of a concert on which I played the instrument (with quite a few exposed parts) I realized I didn't like the tone quality at all. So I sold the instrument after just a month of ownership and have never regretted the decision.

First impressions are not always to be trusted. Beware.
