The Clark Fobes Eb Clarinet extensions do not extend the range of the Eb clarinet, rather the extension fits between the bell and the end of the clarinet adding a properly sized and positioned tone hole to produce the E/B twelfth. The result is the correction of certain intonation problems that are common on Eb clarinet as well as making the tone much smoother and more consistent across the entire range of the instrument.

    Comments about Clark W Fobes Eb Clarinet Extension:

    These extensions are absolutely a must on the smaller Boehm clarinets. They should come as stock parts with all of them. This one is for the Eb, I also have one on my C clarinet (Fobes makes both models). How does it work? – There is one tone hole on this extension that is not used for extending the range of your instrument but it rather takes the place of the acoustically imperfect bell tone, in that way eliminating it. It also improves intonation of the the long notes and the 12ths. A few of my colleagues who use the extension have shared similar positive experiences. When you get the extension take it to your tech to fit it well to the bell and the body of the clarinet. Some cork adjustment / recorking might be needed.

        Comments about Clark W Fobes Eb Clarinet Extension:

        Although specifically for Buffet Eb's I put this on my Patricola that has some difficult tuning issues around 4th line D. This improved the problem and had the additional benefit of making the tone quality smoother in general. Nicely made item and a simple solution for Eb.
