 New instrument and set-up
Author: Lisa

Hello everyone. I just purchased a new clarinet and am trying to find the best set-up for it. My new clarinet is a Selmer Signature and has a beautiful dark sound. (It sounds gorgeous on the 3rd Movement of Saint-Saens Sonata.) Now I have several questions.

Mouthpieces: I tried a Richard Hawkins and thought it made the clarinet sound even better. Does anyone reccomend this mouthpiece or any other?

Ligature: I bought a Vadoren Optimum. I have two questions about it. Which of the three plates do most people prefer? I picked out one that I like best but I want to know what others think. And the ligature isn't inverted is it? I don't think it is but someone told me it was so I'm really confused. The picture on the box pictures it to make me believe that it is not inverted.

Barrels: Is a new barrel really neccessary if one of the barrels that came with the clarinet plays really well in tune? I am trying out a Pyne barrel but it plays as well in tune as does one of the Selmer barrels.

I believe that's all my questions. I'd really appreciate any respones even if you only comment on one of the questions. Thanks for all your time!
