By evaluation, nearly all other woodwind instruments overblow at the octave or just like the ocarina and tonette do not overblow at all. This overblowing conduct explains the clarinet's great range and complex fingering system. The fifth and 7th harmonics also are accessible, sounding an extra sixth and fourth a flat, dwindled fifth higher respectively; these are the notes of the altissimo sign up. This is also why the interior "waist" size is so vital to these harmonic frequencies. Clarinet bodies were crafted from quite a lot of materials including wood, plastic, hard rubber, metal, resin, and ivory. The vast majority of clarinets used by experts are crafted from African hardwood, mpingo African Blackwood or grenadilla, rarely as a result of diminishing provides Honduran rosewood and infrequently even cocobolo. Historically other woods, certainly boxwood, were used. Most within your budget clarinets are made up of plastic resin, reminiscent of ABS. Resonite is Selmer's trademark name for its type of plastic. Metal soprano clarinets were common in the early 20th century until plastic devices supplanted them; metal construction is still used for the bodies of some contra alto and contrabass clarinets and the necks and bells of nearly all alto and greater clarinets. Ivory was used for a few 18th century clarinets, but it tends to crack and does not keep its shape well.
