 Eb soprano clarinet tuning on top notes
Author: Laura 
Date:   1999-07-27 17:42

I wonder if anyone can help me, my orchestra is playing Shostakovich 5th Symphony, and I am playing Eb clarinet in it. It's a brilliant part, with some really cool solos, but the instrument that i am using is in bad condition, and very out of tune (its not mine!). This is alright most of the time, as i can lip it up or down, but is a real problem in the exposed bit of the first movement (if you know it), which is octave leaps on E and then F# between the top 2 registers. Has anyone got any suggestion on how to make a top E sharper and a top F# flatter?
(i'm talking quite seriously out of tune here!)
And there isn't any time to have it overhauled, as we are rehearsing everyday until Saturday, and on Sunday we leave for a 2 week tour to Argentina.
The horn is a Noblet Artist if this is at all relevant.

With thanks in advance to all you knowledgable people!!!
