i'm playing on a selmer rignt how, as i said- it's not mine, but i just can't for the life of me get it to stop squeaking and chirping- regardless of the reed choice. though- b flat reeds haven't worked so well.... what causes squeaks and chirps? i don't even want to play the darn thing if it's going to behave like that! i have some mouthpieces on order which will help... any other suggestions??? thanks!



1. Are you sure that all the pads seat properly and are in good condition? This is potentially a major source of squeaks.

2. Personally I couldn't get trimmed Bb reeds to work well. I use Vandoren Eb reeds.

3. Are you using the stock mouthpiece? This may not be suitable for you. Perhaps you need something better.

Here's my setup and it plays quite nicely.

Selmer Bundy Eb clarinet
Vandoren 5RV mouthpiece
Vandoren #3.5 reeds
