Clarinet Earrings For Girls Overview

The common clarinet contains five parts—the mouthpiece, the barrel or tuning socket, the upper or lefthand joint, lower or right hand joint, and the bell. A thin, flattened, especially shaped piece of cane called a reed needs to be inserted in the mouthpiece before the device can be played. Different notes are produced as the player moves his hands over metal keys which open and shut air holes in the clarinet's body. An device equivalent to the clarinet—a cylindrical cane tube played with a cane reed—was in use in Egypt as early as 3000 B. C. Instruments of this type were used around the Near East into modern times, and other clarinet prototypes were played in Spain, parts of Eastern Europe, and in Sardinia.
