We are speaking abouta rather simple tool here. They are no candidates as direct ancestor of the clarinet. But there is one:The Chalumeau spoken: Shaloomoh was spread widely in all places Europe. The name comes from Greek/Latin,where "Calumus" means pipe. The Chalumeau always was considered a shepherd's instrument, that had to be playedsolo. Unfortunately no Chalumeau has survived one assumes that it have to have looked much like a recorderand sounded like the lower octave of cutting-edge clarinet. It was problematical to play in tune. Therefore it was uninterestingfor most composers and serious musicians, and was rarely used in compositions apart from some shepherd scenes. The problem arising contraptions corresponding to clarinets like the Chalumeau becomes clear in case you concentrate on whathappens if you play an upward scale on an instrument like the recorder: There are seven or eight tone holes for the lower octaveas you have gotten 10 fingers and there's an octave hole. "Overblowing" or beginning an octave hole makes woodwind instruments sound exactly one octave higher than the note would sound without overblowing other than the clarinet, as I will show below. Using an analogous fingering one time with and one without an overblowing hole makes the tool sound in alternative hights; in this contents you speak of lower and upper register.
