Weeding files, I found a spreadsheet I did a few years ago. It attempts to list all the different pitched clarinets ever made. I failed to record my sources for this, but I remember there were several online plus one book.

Here's the list in descending order of pitch. Asterisk indicates obsolete.

Piccolo: G6*, C*, Bb5*, A*, Ab

Sopranino: G5*, F*, E*, Eb, D

Soprano: C5, Bb4, B*, A, Ab* (d'amour) , G

Alto: F4*, E* (basset), Eb, D (basset)

Bass: C4*, Bb3, A*

Contra-alto: G3*, F*, Eb

Contra-bass: C3*, Bb2

Octocontra-alto: Eb2 (experimental)

Octocontra-bass: Bb1 (experimental)

30 different pitches. Only Db and Gb are not represented. There are 5 different Bb clarinets.
