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'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't get with one marque baroque elegance but with this clarinet there will be no chance in the fantastic romantique concertos.

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 :)

Cheers,

Hello, Fellow Clarinettists!:eek:

Even though Im almost 15 years old, I play the clarinet! Bb clarinet to be exact. I've been playing it for 2 years now and I use a vadoren(france) E11 intermediate model...The clarinet sounds so good with many *personalites*(depending on the music piece being performed). It's also a very versatile instrument with jazz and classical. But then again...Im going to have to learn at least all of the instruments in the orchestra if I want to be a conductor when I go to college.....Anway, I look forward to meeting you all wonderful musicians!;)

Though this is 28 months old, I'll comment that clarinet is quite cheap to get into if you're looking for a simple and competent instrument. It would probably be less than two hundred dollars to pick up a student model and have it serviced.

Yes, I agree(<----clarinet player myself)... though it may hard at first as a beginner,hehe.
I'd say start with a plastic model from Yamaha(good for beginners)..=)
If you start playing the clarinet, tell me right away!,lol=)
