I believe what I meant to say when I said those darn bassoonists was that
they only had one horn to carry, as opposed to the rest of the woodwinds who
needed to rent a U-Haul to get theirs to the show.
The edition that we are playing has the bass clarinet and bassoonist playing
in unison a good portion of the show. And yes there is some very difficult
stuff to play. Fortunately the bassoonist and I have played together many
times and work very well together. It would be a tough show to do if you
hadn't worked together before as a group.
I have another question entirely different. I play on a Richard Hawkins
mouthpiece using a Rossi Bb soprano clarinet. Have any of you ever played
on one of his bass clarinet mouthpieces? I am thinking of having him custom
make one for me. I play a Buffet Prestige. What better way to spend my pit
money than on new equipment. ;) I am looking for a rich, dark sound...but
also need help in the higher register.

Subject: [CB] mouthpieces
I was playing my mouthpieces yesterday to see how I liked them. the Selmer
was great when I was pregnant because I was able to play really loud without
having the greatest breath control. Carrying around 24 extra pounds under
your diaphragm isn't easy. However, now I am not so crazy about the Selmer.
I don't like the sound I am getting. I want a warmer sound. I'm not
getting a fuller sound...just a louder one.
Apologies to those of you who like the Selmer mouthpieces. It just isn't
working for me any more.
