Clarinet BUYER’S GUIDE & COMPARISON CHART Student Clarinet Mouthpiece Ligature

Student clarinets are designed for beginners and are meant to provide an excellent start for the first two to three years of playing. Typically student clarinets are made of plastic and are less expensive and more durable than wooden clarinets.

Intermediate Clarinet

Intermediate clarinets are made of better quality materials such as grenadilla wood and have improved keywork, a smaller bore size inside the clarinet for a more focused and centered sound, and undercut tone holes to improve pitch.

Tenon Rings

Professional clarinets are designed and crafted for professional musicians, and they’re also popular among serious high school and college music students. Professional clarinets are built using the finest quality grenadilla or rosewood available.

Artist

Handcrafted and true artist quality.

Upper Joint (Left Hand)

Key Plating

Silver-plated: Silver plating is warmer in appearance, softer to the touch and adds a minute amount of weight to the clarinet and thus slightly darkens the tone. Hamilton Plate: Yamaha offers this blend of silver and gold on its CSG series B♭ and A clarinets. The added weight provides a darker and more liquid sound.

Body Materials

Lower Joint (Right Hand)

Materials used for the clarinet’s body have a huge impact on the instrument’s tone and projection. Plastic (Resin): Plastic is the most durable of body materials, does not change with variations in humidity and temperature, and is more affordable.

PROFESSIONAL / ARTISAN

Nickel-plated: Nickel plate is shiny, extremely durable and does not easily tarnish.

Left Hand Pinky Keys

Ebonite (Hard Rubber): Hard rubber is stable and durable like plastic, but offers a dark sound and stronger projection.

Grenadilla (African Blackwood): Grenadilla is the choice of more advanced and professional clarinet players. The sound is focused and possesses a “ring” that cannot be found in synthetic instruments. Greenline: To answer the problem of dwindling grenadilla stock, as well as the problem of instability of true wood clarinets, Buffet-Crampon has developed a blend of grenadilla dust and epoxy. Greenline clarinets offer the density and tone of a grenadilla clarinet but add the stability of good synthetic materials. Rosewood: Rosewood clarinets offer a darker, more mellow sound than grenadilla.

Bore Size: The size of the clarinet’s bore affects the general playing feel of the clarinet. Larger-bore clarinets are more free-blowing with greater flexibility and projection. Medium-bore clarinets are the most common and offer a balance between flexibility and focus. Smallerbore clarinets are the most resistant clarinets and provide a compact and focused sound. Bore Shape: Cylindrical-bore clarinets are more free-blowing and flexible and offer a large sound with great volume. Polycylindricalbore clarinets are slightly more resistant with more ring and superior intonation.

Saxophone BUYER’S GUIDE & COMPARISON CHART Saxophone Categories

Student Saxophones – Student saxophones are designed for beginners and are meant to provide an excellent start for the first two to three years of playing. Most student saxophones are relatively easy to play, produce a pleasant tone and feel comfortable in the beginner’s hands. Intermediate (Step-Up) Saxophones – Intermediate saxophones, while not sporting the fancy handwork of professional models, produce very good tone and feature key work similar to that of the highest quality saxophones. Professional Saxophones – Designed and constructed with the professional musician in mind, these saxophones have excellent response, intonation and tone. They usually are enhanced with hand-hammered "Bell" and hand engraving.

Body Materials

Lacquered Brass – By far, the majority of saxophones worldwide are constructed of clear or gold lacquered brass. Black Lacquer / Matte Finish – Black or Matt lacquer is heavier than clear or gold and adds weight to the body resulting in a thick, husky sound. Silver-Plating – A dark centered tone with greater volume and projection. Nickel-Plating – Due to its extreme hardness, nickel plating offers the greatest projection and brightest sound. Copper / Bronze – Heavier and softer than brass with the darkest and most covered timbres.

Upper Stack Palm Keys

Special Keys

High F# ��� Allows the player to play F# (above high C). High G – Allows the player to play G (above high C). Front F – Allows for playing the altissimo F by using a key on the front of the saxophone. Tilted Spatulas – Tilting a spatula, or pinky key, allows for a more comfortable, secure hold.

Oboe BUYER’S GUIDE & COMPARISON CHART Higher quality materials, more keys and some hand refinement separate intermediate oboes from student oboes.

Many of the most respected oboe manufacturers offer their professional model oboes in plastic or with a plastic upper joint in place of traditional grenadilla wood. This is advantageous because the upper joint on the oboe is the portion most likely to experience cracking due to fluctuations in temperature and humidity.

Professional Oboe

Key Options

Designed and constructed with professional musicians in mind, professional oboes find favor among more serious students as well. Most professional oboes are made of all grenadilla wood, however, a few feature a crack-proof upper joint made of plastic with a grenadilla lower joint and bell. Professional oboes also feature a system of keys referred to as a full conservatory.

Low B♭: This key extends the range of the oboe to low B♭. Basic student models typically only play to low B natural.

Left Hand Pinky Keys

Grenadilla vs. Plastic: Oboes are made of grenadilla wood or high quality plastics generally known as resonite. Grenadilla has a long tradition of use by professional oboists worldwide because of its warm, rich tone. However, the quality of non-wood instruments has risen to a highly respected level, making them popular with both students and professionals. The plastic resin is highly stable and durable. Plastic oboes are especially durable, not susceptible to cracking and require less maintenance.

Materials

Oboes designed for students are made of grenadilla wood or plastic. For younger beginners plastic is the ideal material because it is very durable. Grenadilla is great for a beginning oboe player who started on another instrument, such as clarinet. Also student oboes also have fewer keys than intermediate or professional instruments.

Bassoon BUYER’S GUIDE & COMPARISON CHART Student Bassoon

Student bassoons are made with durable plastic bodies and typically only feature the essential keys needed for learning the bassoon.

Intermediate Bassoon

Intermediate bassoons are made of plastic or maple, which has a warm, resonant sound. Bassoons made for the intermediate musician typically feature the full German key system, but without the custom keys found on professional bassoons.

Bell

Professional Bassoon

Designed and constructed with the professional musician in mind. While plastic is still used on a few entry-level professional instruments, maple is the material of choice for most professionals. A full German key system is typically used, but several custom keys can be added or adjusted for comfort and ease.

Body Materials Whisper Key Vent Bocal

Plastic: Used for bassoons at all levels, plastic is durable and not affected by humidity or temperature. This makes a good, tough instrument for beginners and outdoor concerts. Maple: Maple is the wood of choice for making fine bassoons. The sound is more resonant than that of plastic.

Bore Design

Long Bore: Offers a rounder sound that blends well. Perfect for chamber and symphonic playing. Short Bore: Offers a more open and singing sound. Excellent for solo bassoon playing.

Other Important Features Reed

High D Whisper Key Wing Joint

Pancake Key Boot Joint

Whisper Key: This key is used as a vent for notes in the lower middle register and allows them to speak at softer dynamic levels. Whisper Key Lock: Keeps the whisper key engaged when finger is not on the whisper key. High D Key: Facilitates the comfort and response of high D. High E Key: Facilitates the comfort and response of high E.

Identical to the 101 but absent the extra rollers. Includes deluxe case with cover. The Fox 201 bassoon features the same bore design as the 101, and comes with all the same features except the extra rollers. Like all Fox bassoons, the Model 201 features freedom of response, intonation, tonal quality, and projection. 462093 | MSRP $23,500.00 | $19,900.00

Model I Bassoon

Boasts a warm and balanced sound. The Fox I (Long Bore) has a very warm and round tone with with excellent balance and even intonation throughout the entire range of the instrument. Its tone quality fits well into chamber ensembles as well as orchestral second bassoon parts. 462103 | MSRP $25,000.00 | $20,499.00

Model II Bassoon

Like Model I but minus the additional rollers. Includes deluxe case with cover. Like the Model I, the Fox II is blessed with the very same warm and round tone with excellent balance and even intonation throughout the entire range of the instrument. The Model II does not have the additional rollers of the Model I. 462104 | MSRP $23,500.00 | $19,999.00

Capable of great power and subtle nuance. To meet the demands of modern orchestral playing, Fox created the 601 bassoon with a thick-wall, long-bore design. This results in tone holes that are larger, longer, and more resonant. The 601 allows the player to create a more powerful sound, yet soft attacks can still be easily handled. This allows for more flexibility in solos without compromising the warm tone that bassoon players seek. 467174 | MSRP $26,500.00 | $20,999.00

Model 101 Bassoon

Sings in the low register. Includes deluxe case with cover. To the bassoon player searching for an instrument with an open tone quality, we recommend the Fox 101. The 101 is designed with Fox's short bore design to allow the player a more open sound than a long bore bassoon. This gives the player great flexibility in a solo setting. The 101 also comes with the most standard roller options available from Fox. 462092 | MSRP $25,000.00 | $21,499.00

Model 660 Professional Bassoon

Built to provide greater power needed in the modern orchestra. The demand for power by modern orchestras prompted the introduction in 1992 of the model 660. It features thicker walls than earlier designs. This results in longer, larger, more resonant tone holes, and a tone quality that is bigger, yet slightly less concentrated than the standard walls of the long and short bore models. It was designed and developed under the supervision of Alan Fox, in conjunction with prominent bassoonists in major symphony orchestras. Like all Fox bassoons, it features freedom of response, intonation, tonal quality, and projection that will satisfy the requirements of the most discriminating performers.

Did You Know— Cleaning Your Mouthpieces It’s important to remember that while you are playing, you are blowing more than just air and water through your mouthpiece. In many cases, these are accompanied by fats, oils, salts, starches, sugars, and acids. Over time, these can form deposits that will affect your piece’s performance. Taking a few moments weekly to rinse your mouthpiece with lukewarm soapy water will be all you need to remove most of these unwanted additions to the interior of your piece. Dry using a VERY soft cloth. For extreme buildup, a mouthpiece cleaner is recommended. Visit our website at wwbw.com to find our selection of mouthpiece cleaners and other care products.

Tenor Saxophone Jazz Mouthpiece Chart This is a mouthpiece tip opening chart for modern and vintage tenor saxophone mouthpieces. Please note that tip openings vary greatly even among the same manufactures. Inconsistencies in tip sizing are particulary evident in vintage mouthpieces. This is due to the heating and cooling endured by the mouthpiece when the facing is first applied. Plastic is much more heat sensitive than other materials. Similar changes occur in hard rubber mouthpiece, though to a lesser extent. Metal mouthpieces are the most consistent. Tip Opening

Valves

French horns come in two basic types: single horn and double horn. Single horns come in two keys: F and B♭. Each type of single horn features three rotary valves. The F horn (for the key of F, not an abbreviation of French) is the most popular single horn for students in the U.S. For larger beginners, a double horn is preferable since most students will move to a double horn anyway within a year or two. BRAND/MODEL

A double horn is actually capable of shifting between the key of F and the key of B♭ through the use of a fourth valve. Actuated by the left thumb, this valve actually cuts out about four feet of the French horn’s tubing from the vibrating air column within.

A French horn is simply a very long tube that is coiled up to make it portable and it’s fitted with valves to lengthen or shorten the air column by rerouting it. The specific design of this coiling is called the horn’s “wrap.” There are three basic types of wrap. The Kruspe wrap locates the fourth rotor valve above the other three when the horn is in playing position. This makes for a shorter linkage between the finger key that actuates the fourth valve and the actual valve.

Standard Double

INTERMEDIATE

Jupiter 752L Yamaha YHR-314II

The Geyer wrap (which as with the Kruspe wrap, is named for its German designer) locates the fourth rotor valve below the other three. Since the linkage reaches past the other three valves, it is much longer.

Rotor Linkages - String or Mechanical The keys are connected to the valves either by super-strong string or by metal rods (mechanical linkage). String linkages are the most popular in the U.S. and are very quiet in operation but eventually the string can break and require replacement. Europeans tend to prefer the mechanical linkage because it never needs replacement, though it can sometimes be heard during quieter music passages.
