In standard the closer the tip commencing, the less resistant it is. But these can be mixed in novel ways to balance or confound one another. Also, there are variable dimensions in the baffle, throat, chamber and even the back bore that can materially add resistance or not and make a curve that should give a definite resistance level a complete various feel from what you'd expect. I do not believe there's always a connection between a player's preference on Bb and his preference on bass. Especially if the bass is a double, reed friendliness and ease of transition among the blowing traits of the bass setup and your accustomed Bb setup are more critical. A stiff reed on a detailed facing doesn't feel an analogous on a bass as it does on a Bb. You may like an corresponding to the M15 or not, but I don't believe what you use on Bb will always be the common. Don't forget that bass clarinets, even when in astonishing mechanical condition, are inherently more resistant than a Bb just because of the size of the air column involved. And numerous basses at least each that I've ever played have mechanical resistances that most of us would never tolerate in a Bb but we learn to accommodate them on a bass. When you take up the clarinet, it’s only natural to make a decision at some point soon that you just’d really want to own an tool of your own. However, finding out that it’s time you had a clarinet of your very own and basically choosing the right option for you're two alternative animals altogether.
