Just received the C clarinet. It plays perfectly in tune using the mouthpiece that comes with it.The M/P is obviously made to be used with this clarinet. The M/P is the same length as a Bb M/P which is great so you don't have to go searching for a C clarinet M/P. They are usually shorter and very hard to find. The sound is very open around the break which is a sign of a well engineered clarinet. This clarinet is a super deal for anyone wanting to play with other C instruments like at church or grandma on the piano.
I've been a professional woodwind player and Tech for over thirty years and I've played all the super expensive name brand c clarinet over the years and this C clarinet plays as well as any of them if not better. You have a great c clarinet here. It is in tune with itself, it has a nice tone and I like it and so will many other people as long as they try it and see.

The mouthpiece that I received with my c clarinet is probably the best mouthpiece i have ever played on. It opens up the sound on any clarinet you play. I play the c clarinet and take the mouthpiece leave the reed on and put the mouthpiece on the Bb clarinet and it makes the Bb clarinet (an old buffet professional model which has a great sound already) sound better. It opens up the and makes the clarinet play with less effort. I have had many expensive mouthpieces over the years but this mouthpiece (C clarinet) is the best one. You have something here very valuable.

And she didn't know i was using the'new' mouthpiece on my Bb clarinet. The item "Berkeley Excellent C Clarinet Ringless Barrel. Wood Power Ligature" is in sale since Sunday, June 14, 2020.
