After doing a bit of research, I've concluded that there aren't many shots of Clarinets here on PB, so I'm taking upon myself to change that. Yes, I was a band geek back in Middle and High School . Enough of that; this is the same Clarinet I have had for close to twenty years; my sister even played it after I did. . Cheers.

Hey nice shot! Great idea!

I was a band geek too! I played the flute! only for about 4 years, and then gave that up for voice and guitar!

I like this shot. I like how the focus is in the centre of the photo with both ends being slightly out of focus. Great composition.

A very good picture of your clarinet,
great idea to increase the number of photos there is lack off them :)

Cool shot, Mike - really well done! Brings me back to my band (geek) days. I played the flute but in marching band the band director let me play drums - which was pretty awesome ;)

There should be more photographs of clarinets on PB:) They are a very interesting looking instrument. Great picture you have.

This is without doubt the best clarinet shot on PB ever! Seriously, it's really good; the b&w and selective focus truly do it justice.
I also enjoyed your story. I trained as a classical musician, but the condition of London streets in the early 80s made it very difficult to wheel a harpsichord around, so nothing quite so charming as your story, except for turning up to a recital a little wasted and deciding to play Led Zep instead of Scarlatti...
