Well i just wanted to know if it is hard to play Eb clarinet, people tell me it is, but i think it is a piece of cake. I think that the people tell me it's hard because they wanna play Eb clarinet......So anyone please tell me if it's hard or not!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's definitely harder to play well, especially in an ensemble. just my 2 cents.

imho..its not as hard as most people say it is..i was just given an old Eb not too long ago..and i washed out the mouth piece and put a new reed on it and i could play all the way up to the altissimo D in tune and i'm brand new to the Eb..but i do have a friend who spent up to 1/2 a year trying to make hers sound nice..

The Eb player in our band was ALWAYS sharp. But then again her clarinet was kind of crappy. But I haven't gotten a chance to play, but perhaps next year I will because she finally graduated this year.

The playing is the same, the only things that changes is that it gets really high, a 4th higher than what you are use to play in a Bb.
And so the intonation is awful. It is really hard to intonate it because of the very high notes...
In ravel's bolero there is a use of this clarinet and in every recordings you can ear the pitch is to high.

You do need to use all your air though. When I play Eb in orchestra and then switch to Bb after a few songs it's just SO relaxing Anyway I like playing the Eb because it's much more solistic than the 12 Bb-clarinet players that are supposed to be in a concert band
