 Re: Bass clarinet register experiment

I've got a Prestige to low "C" serial 27,XXX using a Grabner CX-BB, Rovner ligature and slightly clipped Vandoren 2.5 reeds. Morrie Backun has set up my register keys and also built me a neck piece so that I can play with the mouthpiece at ~40 degree angle vs Buffet's ~55 degree. This was done not for intonation purposes but to relieve the strain on my right wrist.

I have no problem playing your example. However, this is not to say I don't have have a register change over complaint with the horn. Klose page 17 exercise 50 of "68 exercises for mechanism" drives me nuts as the high G stalls for an instant before speaking. Morrie's adjustment helped some and harder reeds also help (Unfortunately, I'm not into blowing my brains out).

For your information my upper vent is about 2.5mm, I can't measure it precisely but a 2.36mm drill bit goes down the hole with a bit of play and a 2.77mm one does not.

A great teacher gives you answers to questions
you don't even know you should ask.
