 Re: Shortening the Stable

I bought one of the playalong CDs for Schumann's Fantasiest├╝cke for clarinet, so playing up to 443Hz on that was a challenge as I use a 67mm barrel on clarinet and had a Vandoren M15 "13" series mouthpiece which is a flat playing mouthpiece, so that took a lot of lipping up! I shortened the mouthpiece by 2mm as I don't want to shorten older Selmer barrels as they're increasingly hard to come by in their full length.

I did a performance of Vivaldi's Gloria a while back in a church where the organ was mostly tuned to 446Hz. Both myself and the piccolo trumpet player could get the higher notes up to that pitch, but the lower register was tricky. It's alright for string players as they can tune sharp, but fixed pitch instruments like woodwinds are limited due to the tonehole layout as you really need to move all the toneholes in relation to the lengths of the joints so the whole instrument is in tune with itself.

Chris.
