 RE: Clarion B&C

Thanx for all those suggestions. The horn is an old (probably 30-40 years)Leblanc that I've had since high school, so I had the best clarinet repair person in the area (rcommended by our professional first-chair Symphony player) go over all the pads & keys about 2 mos. ago, and even had a cork pad put on the register key. So it could still be pads, and I'll check again, but I'm really afraid it's me. I do have undercut tone holes, and I know that precise fingering makes a difference, but I have trouble getting the C to speak even when I stop, position everything consciously, and try to begin the tone with my tongue. I'll double check with the weight of the horn on my knees--I play this way occasionally when my right wrist starts acting up. I'm not sure how to measure the register key clearance--it sounds like you need a special gauge, like a feeler gauge for spark plugs? Next, I guess, will be professional help in the form of lessons, if not psychotherapy!
