 Re: High C Adjustment on Bass Clarinet?

On clarinets with ring keys it's not a problem, but any clarinets with covered/plateaux keywork have to be regulated well so the closure of any fingerplate (and the LH thumbplate) will close the vent key linked to it with the same or very slightly more pressure to account for the amount of give in the pads and also the amount of flexing or any wear in the mechanism.

The LH thumbplate and open G vent is a pain to regulate as there's usually no other form of adjustment besides bending the keys by the appropriate amount and in the appropriate place as opposed to adjusting any adjusting screw or an adjustable sliding linkage, which is why I advise anyone with little to no knowledge about woodwind repair to tackle it as things can go horribly wrong.
