 C. Robert Scott

It is with great sadness that I'm reporting to you the passing of Bob Scott of Lansing, MI. If you never got a chance to have Bob work on your instruments in his basement shop. you've missed something. I am proud to say that I have several of his great barrels, a ligature, and several sets of his handmade ligatures screws. I will treasure them always.

Here is the link to his obituary. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/lsj/obituary.aspx?n=c-robert-scott&pid=189249403&fhid=21005

We have lost a legend.

I worked with CRS when i was at Interlochen.
So many great memories.
He taught me to make reeds from scratch.
My entire current Boehm Bb and Eb set up (MP, Ligature (w Giant custom screws, not the kind with rubber rollers) & Barrel(s) - 63-66mm) are CRS.
Thanks for everything. I will think of you always.

I will miss you greatly.

I've owned a few of his barrels ... I currently have two ... one that I purchased recently is a collectors item, as the tenon sockets are reversed.

Sorry this has happened, but I knew he was in his 90s. Mr. Scott had a good run ...

As a touring musician with Les Miserables I visited him. He was very helpful and shared his ideas on mouthpieces and oboe playing. He had some unique ideas pertaining to measuring the very start of the facing. For him this was a crucial issue. Very sorry to hear of his passing. He was a dedicated guy and very friendly.

Dam - A true master. A real very kind gentleman. It was a pleasure knowing him.

I first met him at Interlochen Arts Academy in 1972, he was just so nice. He would drive up from Lansing to take care of the students needs at Interlochen. A very long trip and he didn't charge for his time.

I often called him Scotty.

I'm very sad to hear this. When I was asking him to make some custom sized barrel or had a few mouthpieces refaced, he was always eager to help and his work was always top quality. I still use his barrels, and will use them until I play. He was a really friendly gentleman, and an excellent craftsman.

In 1995 I was working at the Interlochen Summer camp, and was enlisted to play in the Traverse Symphony Orchestra for a few of their summer concerts. One of the pieces was Candide overture- and I was given the E flat part (along with an R13 E flat clarinet). My experiences with E flat had been quite hellish prior to that, so I was NOT enthusiastic about this development.
Well, a local player (forgotten his name, but he still has my music for the Lilburn Sonatina) lent me his E flat clarinet mouthpiece, a scratched up old french blank refaced by Bob Scott, and holy camoly THAT changed the game.
For the first time in my life I could play E flat, and LOVED it. For the next 10 years E flat clarinet was "my jam" (Brad Behn sorted me out with my own mouthpiece in '96, and I have played that since- two other players have tried to buy it off me, so I take that as a good sign!)
So while I never met Bob Scott, I heard a lot about him and he turned on the lights for me where E flat clarinet was concerned.
