In this episode of the podcast co-hosts Sean Perrin and Andrew Morrow hold a debate on topics discussed in the Clarineat Community on Facebook. This week’s topics include: Which way should you pull the swab (and does it matter)? Does key plating make a difference for sound, feel, and response? Is humidification really necessary? And thoughts on individually-wrapped reeds.
Debates are held every Wednesday in the Clarineat Community on Facebook. Thanks to all who contributed to the conversation, and if you’d like to get involved please see Clarineat.com/Group and I will add you.
1. Which direction should one pull the swab? (And does it really matter?)
2. Does key plating make a difference for clarinetists?
3. Do you humidify your clarinet? Why or why not?
4. Thoughts on individually-wrapped reeds.
