I think you will have an enjoyable time with both the clarinet and the sax books.

One thing that the late, great GBK and I agreed on was using the Arban Book for trumpet with our best clarinet players. We both felt that was a really great way to improve dexterity around the break.

On clarinet, this is also a great way to practice using the RH and LH pink keys. Where you might go LRL for a series on notes, us the LH Eb/Ab key if you have it.

The beauty of using the Bach Suites is you will get some unusual passages that you might not experience using specially transcribed bass clarinet music. It will be harder at first but will pay great dividends in the long run.

Who really cares what your actual pitch is since these are unaccompanied works.


PS Do not be afraid to slip in a few of the lower notes (C#, D, and C) when you see an opportunity. A little extra challenge is always a bonus.
