Though there are more than a dozen different modern clarinet types, the most common ones utilized in orchestras and bands are the B flat and A clarinets. The bass clarinet, which is much bigger than the general and has an upwardly curved bell, is also frequently utilized in modern bands and orchestras. The average clarinet contains five parts—the mouthpiece, the barrel or tuning socket, the higher or lefthand joint, lower or right hand joint, and the bell. A thin, flattened, in particular shaped piece of cane called a reed needs to be inserted in the mouthpiece before the instrument can be played. Different notes are produced as the player moves his palms over metal keys which open and shut air holes in the clarinet's body. An instrument comparable 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 across the Near East into modern times, and other clarinet prototypes were played in Spain, parts of Eastern Europe, and in Sardinia. A folk tool found in Wales during the eighteenth century, called the hompipe or pibgorn, was very corresponding to Greek and Middle Eastern cane single reed contraptions, but it was made up of bone or of elder wood. Through the Middle Ages and up to the 17th century such single reed instruments were played across Europe, but they were almost completely peasant or folk devices. The modern clarinet seems to were originated by a Nuremberg instrument maker, Johann Cristoph Denner, sometime around 1690.
