Hello everyone, hope all of you are doing well!!
I want to express an issue that i am trying to deal with! This is happening for a long period of time now. I have an old Buffet A clarinet
in excellent condition serviced by the best tech here in Greece. I play with the same mouthpiece (Vandoren B45 Lyre) on both my Bb and A clarinet
. With the same set up (mouthpice & reed) my Bb plays perfectly and when i switch to the A the sound becomes really acute and the clarinet
tends to squeak from the G (high register and above). I am trying to control it with my mask but that doesn't allow me to play freely. I have tested all the reeds, i have come to the conclusion that on this particular instrument the ''Tsalikis reeds'' # 1,25 fits better i can play generally..But it is not perfect..This clarinet
has a lot more to give..Perhaps i need to search for other mouthpieces..What are your thoughts?
