1. Practice mouthpiece exercises on each instrument (concert C on B-flat Clarinet, concert F on Bass, Concert A on alto sax). Go quickly from each to the next and ensure that you're getting the correct pitch. This is with mouthpiece alone, so the slightest bit of change in your embouchure is noticable!

2. I usually have alto sax in front to the left, bass clarinet in front on the right, and clarinet on my left. This allows me to put the bass on the stand as I'm picking up another instrument. I use a harness to play alto sax, and if the change is really quick, I'll typically play one of the clarinets with the sax still on (usually with the neck over my right shoulder).
