Hello. I have a vintage wooden clarinet, a Boosey and Hawkes Emperor. It has a problem with an occaisional buzzing resonating sound that comes with the over the break B. I have stripped it, cleaned and oiled it, reseated one pad (a different one), checked all pads are seated correctly and not leaking also it's regulation as in the two B and C keys are coming down together. I replaced the crows foot cork. Initially changing the bell seemed to help but there appears to be nothing wrong with the original. no loose rings etc. I was playing it with my vandoren mouthpieces but was advised to use a larger bore mouth piece to suit the large bore of the clarinet. I have a Boosey and Hawkes mouthpiece which if memory serves came with it a couple of years ago but is not the model that originally went with the emperor. The problem persists even with this mouthpiece that I don't really like anyway.
Has anyone any suggestions as to why this is happening and solutions please? Thanks
