 RE: articulated C#-G#

The articulated C#/G# key does indeed eliminate the "long F" altissimo fingering. This "long F" has several advantages depending on your individual clarinet and your playing abilities. It tends to be inherently better in tune than other fingerings for F. It also seems to be more stable for long held notes. It seems to have a more robust sound. These advantages are only pertinent to the clarinet with its register jumps being limited to odd harmonic intervals. Instruments like the flute, oboe, and sax jump by octaves, including the even harmonics so the advantages that accrue to the clarinet fingering simply aren't relevant and the articulated C#/G# is the standard mechanism.
