 Re: Double register neck on a single register instrument?

In short, no, but it might... Here are some of the many possible problems...

If the tenon is too large it won't fit at all or it could be too small by enough to cause a problem. In those cases it would need to be changed most likely. It could also be too long.

Length wise it might be too long so play low. If it's adjustable, maybe too long at its shortest length.

A different bore could cause some unpredictable results.

There is no lever on the clarinet to operate the neck key. Also the entire mechanism on almost all single reg key models is controlled by the A key and not the G/D key like most double reg models. so possibly a whole new mechanism will have to be custom made for it.

Also the acoustics of the vents themselves are different. The vent on single reg models is a larger compromise (since it's for the entire range). Even if changing the entire mechanism, keeping this vent for the lower clarion is worse than the vent on a real double reg model.

Plus other possible issues.
