 Re: Stop clarinet from "squaking"

Well can you hold all of the upper joint keys down and jet at least 30 seconds of a complete seal? THen check the lower joint. Same thing. Are any of the connecting joints wobbly? Air can leak there as well.

Yes I'd find a good repairman and I think the BD5 is way too open for the average player, 1.01 to 1.08 is ideal. The BD5 is 1.13 and higher, so don't bite and have fun with music. Get another mouthpiece. Not a Zinner, nor the Vandoren M series as they will play flat with Beethoven's 6th. Maybe get the Selmer Concept and send it to me for some adjustments at no charge, as it is the best mouthpiece right now. I do like the Yamaha Custom mouthpieces, but the tip openings are 1.23 or so and require a major refacing.


Good luck...
