Excellent profession C Clarinet Adjust ThumbRest wDark Tone
Just received the C clarinet. I am very happy with it. 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. I sold a buffet C clarinet recently because it could not be played in tune.
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. Clarinestists are always searching for the perfect mouthpiece , this one is close to perfect.I was playing Jesu joy of mans desiring and my wife said", wow, nice sound". and she didn't know i was using the 'new' mouthpiece on my Bb clarinet.
You were absolutely right: the quality of this C clarinet is unbelievable for the price, and I couldn't be happier with the sound. (I used my Hite Premiere mouthpiece because I'm used to it, but I'll try the other one sometime soon.) I left a detailed review and a five-star rating for this instrument. In the past, I've had an Amati and a Ridenour C-key clarinet, and paid $700 or more for them. This Berkeley produces as good a tone as either one of those brands, and for half the price. As I said in an earlier message to you, one of the features that attracted me was the Backun-style ringless barrel, plus the traditional ringed barrel. I don't know of any other brand that comes with both styles--and if there's one that does, it will be high-priced for sure!
