 Tarogato lower register & embouchure
Author: htoyryla

I am new to tarogato; just yesterday bought me a Gregus Pal model from Budapest. I find that I have problems getting the lower register without jumping up an octave. The most difficult seems to be the low E. Of course, there might be a leak, but a blowing and suction test on the upper joint makes me feel that it is rather air-tight.

Experimenting with the embouchure, I notice that spreading the lower lip as broadly on the reed seems to help.

I also notice that the mouthpiece table is wider that the reed (I have tried various Bb clarinet reeds -that what I understood should be used).

Any ideas?
