Hello, new here to the forums, and looking for a doubling instrument.
I started on the Oboe, and was very good, but for marching, I needed to switch. Now, I play Bflat soprano for my marching band/wind ensemble, have played for about 4 years now, but not quite satisfied with my concert performance. So, I've been thinking about switching to a stranger instrument, my choices are
Eflat Alto Clarinet
(possibly) Basset Horn
I love long, loud notes, slurring, and playing some melody.
I don't excessive tonguing, and using an extreme amount of air.
I plan on taking private lessons and getting a good instrument. Before I go in a few weeks to try them out, does anyone have any suggestions?
