I was recently on a vacation in Arizona and bought a Selmer CL300 in a Pawn shop for $80 US $.

I haven't played clarinet for at least 45 years, but I could go from the Low E to the upper register b pretty well (of course with the odd squeak hear and there).

The joint between the upper key stack and the lower key stack wobbles. Just wondering if this means that new cork is required? Any other ideas of how to fix?

Also it came with a LeBlanc mouthpeice. I am assuming it is not a high quality mouthpiece as there is no model number on it that i could see.


It feels odd to me becuase the reed sits so close to the mouthpiece tip. I perfer a wider opening on the sax. Any thoughts on a mouthpiece - what's good mouthpiece and are there standard measures for the tip opening.

thanks

You need a new cork. I usually buy it from a guy in Canada (ebay seller, nice and friendly). I will find out his contacts, if you want.

Leblanc mouthpieces can be really good, but please remember that a clarinet mouthpiece is more delicate than a saxophone one.

I would be interested in the contact information. I also am in Canada and would like to see what kind of things he sells.

I will take the clarinet to a repair guy as I'd be afraid of botching the job.

Thanks for your helpl.
