 Alto clarinets
Author: tucker 2017

A band mate of mine has started playing alto clarinet. She's borrowing a Vito (not sure of the model) and is struggling with the instrument... some notes sound very flat, some very "airy", others just have a terrible sound. It's been checked out by the local tech who says there are no leaks etc. She's playing the C* mouthpiece that was in the case.

I know nothing about alto clarinets so I thought I'd turn to the "alto experts" here for some information.

She's interested in purchasing a good used alto.... any suggestions on what to look for or avoid?

Many thanks!
