Hmmm...I always thought that I preferredthe higher notes but now I'm not sure. I love the range that the clarinet has. The lower notes are so pleasant to hear and it's a very tough call for me personally but I'd say the lower notes.

Sorry, I didn't clarify. When I said that "I always thought that I preferred the higher notes," I meant that it was my opinion for last year.

i think the low notes can sound really mellow and beautiful but i love how huge the clarinets range is. i recently switched to saxophone and felt really deprived!

on soprano clarinet, i like low. they are obnoxious when they get too high.
bass clarinet, i love it all! low is really fun to play, but high sounds really pretty... it really depends on what i'm playing i guess. sometimes you just need to be grinchy and low

My friend plays the contrabass clarinet and the low notes are quite fun.

Luckily, the clarinet has a wonderfully large and extensive range. I like notes in the Chalumeau register, but a good clarinet player with a good clarinet can easily make the high notes(like around the break) sound fantastic! I don't think I have any preference, so I love it when you hear a clarinet player performing a piece where his range jumps all over the place.

"My friend plays the contrabass clarinet and the low notes are quite fun."

personally, i like the middle/high range of contrabass clarinet better. sure, the lowest ones are super fun in that fog-horn sort of way, but they practically don't sound like notes. A on the staff and above, though- ooo they're smooth and pretty

I like different qualities of both ranges, but one important thing to remember is that the key to good tone in the upper registers is good tone in the lower register to start with. The high notes are only fun if they sound good.

I like both ranges but the high one seems like the one I use the most.

I am a low wind kind of person so i love the low range but the clarinet it the only instrument where the high range can give me goose bumps! the clarinet really is a special instrument when it comes to range and timber, both of which are so differantly amazing i feel left out playing the saxophone but i like the sax more sorry

MOST OF YOU ARE WRONG! High notes are better for the following reasons:
1. Its usually melody and people pay attention to those
2. Base is commonly background
3. High notes are easier to hear and if your good at them, they swallow the whole room with a wonderful and rich tone.
4. I dont know that many things, low just SUCKS! (my opinion)
w/e practice high notes they come out good. Low notes, how i said before, are commonly background. But its good that base and treble are mixed together. For example, look in youtube.com and look if you can find a clarinet quintet for super mario bros. You can easily hear both high and low notes. Look at it and decides whats best for you.
