theclarinetcorner:

Dark. Higher pitched(442 mainly). If one were to get a German clarinet in the states. It’d work but you’d be tuning down and the fingering is what you’d have to get used to. You’ll never find a french boehm system clarinet in a German Orchestra.

I like their sound. Very robust or full. It’s amazing how the keywork and bore design can change that. Down the road I do plan on learning the german system and owning a german clarinet for kicks.

My friend has a German clarinet and it sounds really good. The quality in the tone is excellent from playing soft to playing loud.

notanotheryoutubeblog said: I'm thinking about buying a wooden clarinet, granadilla wood if that makes a difference to the answer for my following question: what are some care and maintenance tips for the wood?

Anyone wooden clarinet should not be exposed to extreme temperatures! Keep it away from heat and the cold. Also, make sure you always swab it when you’re done playing (or in the middle).

You should also make sure your hands are clean when handling the instrument. Don’t want oily/greasy hands from food to get on/in the clarinet.

There’s a start for maintenance tips!

calm-amidst-chaos said: Is the Jean Paul brand of clarinet a good one or does it sound cheap?

No. It’s been around since 2012. No resale value. No in store service plan. Warranty only covers their defects and no wear and tear and it is available through Costco like the Suzuki clarinets which are also crap. ISOs as we call them at Kennelly Keys Music. Instrument Shaped Objects. I’d go with a reputable brand if I were you.
Here are some brands along with their basic models:
Selmer
-Bundy
Leblanc
-Vito
Buffet
-Evette
Boosey & Hawkes
Anything labeled from Indiana -kinda
SML (Strasser Marigaux Lemaire)
Yamaha
Jupiter
Olds - not so much really
Cannonball -not so much really
Antigua - by Backun

Anything from there would be great to acceptable. Definitely do your research on the brand. Consumer reviews are the best. On site reviews are the worst most of them time. They’re usually only praises.

awkwardly-an-animagus said: I'm at the beginning of my 4th year of playing clarinet, and I am currently using size 3 and a half reeds. Is that a typical size for my experience level? When should I move up to size 4?

That’s pretty normal for a lot of players. The only reason I jumped to 4 was because i got a new mouthpiece and ligature. This was quite a few years ago. I would say go ahead and try them out and see if you like them but there’s no rush it do so unless you absolutely need to.

notanotheryoutubeblog said: Also, what do you think of the Buffet E11? Would that be a nice clarinet for a high school student?

The E-11 is a good model for an intermediate player/starting out, yes. But if you’re looking to go professional in the future, an R-13 would work!
