    It's an open piece and you can definately make it cut through. But control it and it will give you a nice full tone. It was by chance that I ended up with it. I didn't even know they made clarinet pieces. (I've used a Lakey for alto sax in the passed) I was trying some Vandoren pieces at the time. But I liked it, and in the end, that all that matters to me.

    I have a Ralph Morgan RM10 on my Selmer Series 10 (1971) with a Brancher ligature. I use a Grabner K13 on my Buffet R13 Green Line with a Robert Vinson lig I just got this week. I'm currently using Legere Quebec #3.25's, getting used to them after having moved up through 2.75's and 3's. Sometimes I'll use one of the softer Legeres again or a Fibracell Medium if it's been a particularly long day.

    Buffet E11 Bb, (With the wood dye removed) (my own doing, I prefer the natural color of the wood, almost like a VERY deep, dark purple black color)
    W.S. Sumner Acousticut 4 Mouthpiece
    Vandoren Blue Box 3-3.5
    ~OR~
    Vandoren German Model Mouthpiece (forget the model number or anything)
    Vandoren Black Master 3.5
    Both use a metal guitar capo for a lig

    Played a contra alto for a few songs for school, and had a solo in jazz band with it, that was fun. It was a Bundy, with a stock mouthpiece and some frankenstein lig.

    Interesting, how did you accomplish this? Do you have any photos of the result?

    [QUOTE=stevesklar]I have a 1978 Normandy 4 and a 1960ish Noblet 45.
    QUOTE]

    Update (a long time ago actually)

    [1] Leblanc Symphonie 3 (replaced my Classic II)
    - but going to get it silver plated

    [2] Selmer Centered Tone w/articulated G#

    [3] Leblanc LL


    I prefer my vintage mpcs with them, such as:
    Buffet Evettini
    Selmer 1st & 2nd Generation HS*
    Buffet C Crown
    and others I can't recall - i have a ton of mpcs since i started mpc refacing.

    and I typically use Vandoren Traditional 4s (or purple box), depending upon tip opening maybe less. I also use Mitchell Lauries from time to time.

    When I was oiling the bore, a few drops fell onto the low E tone hole (is that the right word) and when I rubbed it off, the dye came off, leaving a nice deep, rich color. I can take photos as soon as I get my stupid camera fixed.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I took the keys off, ran once around the clarinet with 800 grit sandpaper, and then did it to the entire horn (after testing it below the RH thumbrest and liking the result)
    Also, it took a HUGE amount of elbow grease to get rid of the dye, and the clarinet stank of petroleum for a week or so afterwards.

    I really love this horn (for a clarinet). The price difference between this and a similarly conditioned Selmer CT was the main reason for the purchase. Haven't looked back since.
