How to buy clarinet supplies

Deciding where to buy clarinet supplies can sometimes be difficult, especially for clarinet players who live in remote areas. While it is easy in most areas to find a used clarinet for sale at a reasonable price, you may find shops selling clarinet supplies hard to find. Even if there are many options in your area, it can sometimes be hard to decide what you need to buy for clarinet care and repairs.

The very basics required for your clarinet should include a number of reeds that are at the right strength for you; cleaning supplies including a swab cloth (a cloth with a covered weight attached) and papers for cleaning holes (cigarette papers often work well); and cork grease for keeping the cork on your clarinet supple so it doesn’t crack.

Many other players choose to buy a mouthpiece brush, and a stand to rest their clarinet on when they are not playing. Often if you buy your clarinet new from a musical instrument supplier you can get a good deal on buying the supplies you need, or even have some included free. Don’t be afraid to ask the salesperson what kind of deal they can do.

Many suppliers will sell you what you need for your clarinet by mail order or over the internet. This is a good option if you already know what products you like and need, and often these suppliers can do very good deals. If you are not sure about the products they are offering, ask your teacher or fellow players if they have used them before and what they think of them. If you are going to buy via mail or the internet, don’t forget to factor in the cost of postage when deciding if these things for your clarinet are a bargain or not.
