 Re: Amati C Clarinet
Author: Hurstfarm

The flat B (and to a lesser extent low E) is not uncommon on C clarinets. I have found the hole in the back of the bell below the tenon is a decent fix for most, including the Amati.

In answer to Donald's question, I once bought an Amati C as a project to see what could be done with a nice piece of granadilla with comfortable keywork attached. After a full re-pad, some limited tuning tweaks, proper regulation and some improved cork buffering the result was good enough to give pause for thought whether a mainstream professional instrument at three times the price is worthwhile, and raised some eyebrows amongst professional colleagues who play-tested it!
