    I&#39;ve thought about taking it up, but I only have the time and money for one instrument, and I decided that would be violin. (my entry exam is next month :unsure: )

    I am interested in the clarinet (and I learned some things about it when I studied orchestration), but I don&#39;t have one or play it at all. But yes, it is a beautiful instrument&#33;

    what kind of clarinet are you learning?

    I suppose a B-flat boehm?

    any body care for a discussion of boehm vs. oehler?

    I am no authority on the subject because I never touched a clarinet myself.

    however, I have heard a boehm, and was not very impressed with the tone (although the player was not professional, it could be his fault), however, I heard an albert, in an old recording, by an old turkish play (turkish=>doesn&#39;t care much for tone), it blew me away, even a person who was not classically trained in clarinet, and had no great interest in cultivating beautiful tone, sounded marvellously close to a human voice, on a simple albert clarinet, which could not be of the highest quality.

    any experiences on the subject?

    I am also not an expert in this field, but i guess it depends on the repertoie you are playing. Maybe you can&#39;t get with one marque baroque elegance but with this clarinet there will be no chance in the fantastic romantique concertos.

    I used to play ~ Bb & A (B & H wooden Edgewares) & Bb bass (Noblet) ~ boehm, though I have played on simple system. Not played for 20 years now.

    I play ... and am writing a new piece for clarinet solo, mostly because our trio had a recital date which was changed without our consent :-)
