    Coming out of the closet

    Hiya I recently took up tenor sax after a 30 year hiatus with my clarinet. As in, I re-took up the clarinet about two years ago Loving playing the tenor, but wow, those long notes are tricky down the register. Anyhow, thanks for this and happy blowing!! Gary

The facing is largely flat, at a slight angle to the table, leading to a slight curve about 5mm to the tip. It only plays if you insert practically the whole of the mouthpiece in...

    I am thinking about upgrading my Bb clarinet, but I don't really know much about them. I have a Yamaha 250, which I picked up on EBay cheap and it turned out to be in perfect condition.
