The bass clarinet is a musical instrument of the clarinet family. Bass clarinets in other keys, principally C and A, also exist, but are very rare by contrast to the typical A clarinet, which is very common in classical music. Bass clarinets regularly
carry out in orchestras, wind ensembles/live performance bands, from time to time in marching bands, and play
an occasional solo role in contemporary music and jazz in particular. Most modern bass clarinets are directly bodied, with a small upturned silver coloured metal bell and curved metal neck. Early examples varied suit, some having a doubled body making them look corresponding to bassoons. The bass clarinet is reasonably heavy and is supported either with a neck strap or an adjustable peg attached to its body. While Adolphe Sax imitated its upturned metal bell in his design of the bigger saxophones, the two instruments are essentially various. Bass clarinet bodies are generally made from grenadilla African Blackwood or more commonly for pupil contraptions plastic resin, while saxophones are usually made of metal. Metal bass clarinets exist, but are rare.
