Common sense, types, maintenance and purchase of clarinets

Jan 19,2019


1. Basic common sense 

Clarinets were invented in the 17th century by the German instrument maker Jochen Christoph Dunner based on the French clarinet reform.The clarinet is divided into five parts: the flute head, the second section, the upper section, the lower section, and the mouth.Musical instruments are divided into two types: hose and woodwind. Hose instruments range from a few hundred to a few thousand yuan, and beginners use more; woodwind instruments range from a few thousand to tens of thousands of yuan, and professional groups and teachers use more.

Two, the type

The modern clarinets we use now are all in the German standard, that is, the French standard clarinet, which includes 17 keys, 18 keys, 19 keys and 21 keys. In addition to the most commonly used B-flat clarinets, there are also A, E (treble clarinet), bass clarinet, alto clarinet, etc. In this big family, although there are many varieties of clarinets with different uses, the fingering used is the same, and of course the mouth shape is the same.

3. Quality standards

When choosing a clarinet, you should pay attention to the following points: first of all, you must choose a good brand (because their quality is very guaranteed). The second is appearance.After each section is installed, there must be no shaking, no scratches on the tube body and keys, whether the upper and lower sections are leaking, and whether the pitch is correct when playing. The last is whether the brand you purchased has formal and good after-sales service.All repair accessories used in regular sales are produced by the original factory (such as gaskets, steel needles, cork, springs).After purchasing a musical instrument, the only problem is how to maintain and maintain it. Only a regular company can provide professional after-sales service for the musical instruments sold.In addition, except for professional maintenance, don't try to repair it yourself.

4. How to choose a satisfactory musical instrument (

It is very important to buy a handy clarinet for your child.Just starting to learn, you can buy cheaper popular products. Most of these musical instruments are made of special plastic and are not easy to crack (advanced clarinets are made of ebony, which is not well protected and easy to crack).

The whistle piece is distinguished from soft and hard by the number. The smaller the number, the thinner the texture, and the softer the whistle piece.Therefore, children who are just starting to learn should apply the No. 1 and a half whistle, which is good for fixed mouth shape and correct breathing. Do not use a strong whistle.

The clarinet is a more general and cheap musical instrument in the kingdom of musical instruments. Even if it is a higher-level instrument, the most advanced one is only a few thousand dollars, and the cheapest one is only a few hundred yuan. Regardless of the price, it is most important to pick a handy instrument.Therefore, it is best to buy musical instruments under the guidance of professional teachers or professionals.Because even musical instruments at the same price have different qualities.For example: pitch; the height of the key; the softness of the spring; whether it leaks; whether the tone of the upper and lower sections is consistent; whether the vibration is good.This knowledge is what parents should know when buying musical instruments for their children.

4. Maintenance. If we buy a popular musical instrument made of general plastic or bakelite, it is easier to protect it. It will not crack due to changes in temperature and humidity. After each performance, use a soft qin cloth to dry the water in the tube and put it in the instrument box.Often rub vaseline oil on the cork of the connecting part of the musical instrument to keep it lubricated.Do not be directly exposed to the sun. When using it, pay special attention not to break the metal keys hard. At the same time, avoid collisions, knocks, so as not to deform the metal keys and leak air. Often put some clock oil on the metal bearing part to maintain flexibility. It is also very important. If you are buying a high-grade wooden musical instrument, you must pay special attention to anti-cracking.In most parts of our country, spring and winter are relatively dry, especially in winter, most parts of the north have heating, which makes it easier for wooden musical instruments to crack.It is best to dry it immediately after each performance and put it in the instrument case. Even if it is half an hour, it should be placed in the instrument case. It is better not to wipe it, but it must not be placed directly in a dry environment. Otherwise, the surface of the instrument is wet and the outside is dry, which can easily crack.The rest of the maintenance methods are the same as plastic and bakelite products.

Professionals must be hired for the repair of musical instruments. Such a complex mechanical linkage device cannot be repaired without professional knowledge and experience.
