On the upper and lower part of a normal Bb clarinet we find in a row the 6 tone holes that are operated by the fingers of the right hand and left hand 2 3 4 .
In addition to these, there are 2 small tone holes, of which the shape of the covers suggests that they are only operated by the rings of the other tone holes and not by the fingers.
Recently I bought an older Amati Eb clarinet to give it a try, just for fun.
The upper and lower parts of this clarinet are made from one piece of wood.
I was surprised to see that the shape of the covers on the small tone holes does suggest that they can also be operated with the fingers in addition to the rings.
I could not find any information about this in the fingering chart for the Boehm system.
Perhaps one of the forum members can provide more information on this.
I am attaching a photo of the clarinet.
