The modern basset clarinet is basically a clarinet in the key of A with the additional length and keywork to extend the lower range to C.


A few years ago, a photo was posted of a recreation of the instrument for which Mozart wrote his concerto. Its bell differed from today's clarinet, in that it was more like a bulb than a bell! It was discussed on the old Klarinet List. I do not have a reference to the site where it was posted, but have a copy archived.
