    Re: Most embarrassing performance moment

    The very first pop music job that I ever oversaw was done with minimal music (say thirty decent arrangements) picked up for the price of shipping, plus a very few arrangements that I could get done...

    Re: any one play a full boehm clarinet

    And an update on the bass clarinet case issue. Thus far, there's still no path to a new case for my 1970's vintage horn. Sigh...

    Re: I just don't understand :/

    An added factor in this particular case is that it is a straight horn. While they stay in regulation better, they are a bear to transport due to the length.

    If I were in the market (which I am...

    Re: Bass clarinet peg problems

    I do know one thing about bass clarinet pegs - don't ever have your nickel plated peg silver plated. I did (both of them, the short and the long), and neither have stayed put ever since. And, I found...
  5. Re: Moving up from a Yamaha 221 II Bass Clarinet. Suggestions?

    I, for one, think that teh current Selmer model sucks and blows chunks, both at the same time. I went in to try it with the expectation that I was playing my next bass, and went away convinced that...

    Re: Big Band tunes with Clarinet lead.

    As noted, it depends a lot on the arranger. Wolpe's stuff can be considered "modern versions" of the tunes in question, and that's the approach that he took. I have the Hest arrangements of the...

    People who put horns up for sale on eBay often ignore the most obvious measures to ensure a sale. This horn is shown better than many, but the number of clarinets for sale that only have a photograph...

    Re: average musician gets $23 out of $1000?

    Uh, talking about rock groups getting screwed is pretty common, but it isn't really fair the way it is usually presented. That 50,000 sales figure most likely meant that the advance they were given...

    Re: Help! My rovner wont fit in my case!

    And, the Rovner is only the tip of the iceberg as far as not fitting in the case is concerned. The massive Harrison ligature, with all sorts of metal superstructure to which an assortment of metal...

    Re: Baritone Sax stand for 11 year old girl

    Uh, while young Jonas' stand has a few new wrinkles, he probably already knows that similar stands (which suspend the instrument as if it is "floating in air") are nothing new. The first one I saw...
  11. Re: Anybody Know About Ivan C. Kay Chrystal Clarient Mouthpieces?

    The information on the ad leads me to believe that this was something from the 1930's or earlier - check out the six digit phone number (CH-4288), which (for a big city like Detroit) is at least from...

    Re: A week with a Bari

    Hamilton baritone stands are the spawn of the Devil. Don't allow one within a hundred yards of any baritone that you value.

    Re: Any 1 seen a white leather sax strap

    Iffen you can't find one, you could do what I did when confronted by a lack of bassoon seat straps made to suit me - you could have a leather shop put one together for you toute suite.

    Re: Oboe spittle

    A turkey wing feather was the traditional way of doing this back when I still associated with double reed players. I don't know where they got them, but they were in constant play whenever my oboe...

    Re: Buffet Bass Cl. 1180 vs 1183

    When playing single register vent bass clarinets, I have always noticed an audible "hissing" 'note' issuing from the upper hole (the only "register vent" on these instruments, unless you count the...

    Re: Yakety Sax

    Norred has done a number of commercial arrangements in our library. Nothing spectacular, but certainly yeoman like work.

    By the way, the tune was written by James Q. "Spider" Rich, not by Benny...
  18. Re: Anyone have the full version of 'Can You feel the love tonight' ?

    There is a full 5444 version with male vocal that we have in our library. It's high school/college stuff, but it works with the vocal pretty well when someone wants to hear the tune. I don't have the...

    Re: Baritone Sax stand for 11 year old girl

    I second the bad opinion on the Hamilton. Those things are baritone destroyers, plain and simple.

    Go with the harness. It will spread the weight out a bit more than a neck strap. I use an...
