Rucha in The Registers of the Clarinet video explains and illustrates the division of the clarinet range into registers.

Using the nomenclature in the video, the Chalumeau is from E1 to Bb2 (a four-note subset of the chalumeau, G, Ab, A, and Bb, is often called the "throat tone register")

Clarion is B2 to C3

Altissimo is C#3 and above.

Chalumeau comprises all the notes at the base level (without the register key).

Clarion covers many of the same fingerings (E1 to F2) but with the register key open (which overblows the Chalumeau notes by an interval of a twelfth).

Altissimo uses cross fingerings and air pressure to emerge as the third register.

This division of the clarinet range into three registers was already well established in 1843, when the first edition of the Klose method for clarinet appeared (J. Meissonier, Paris). On page one, the registers and their ranges are described--the "chalumeau," the "clarion" and the "aigue" (high, acute, altissimo).
