As fars as the C clarinet , it is far superior to the Bb clarinet. Why? Because it is basically better in tune with itself, the timbre and tuning being more matching that of the Bb clarinet. It is easier to “sing” on the instrument, and, if endurance is a problem, you can play it far longer with less fatigue. For me, I would change all of the repertoire to Clarinet in C, including chamber music. Mainly, most classical composition was written for the C clarinet. So, while for some of you, this may sound like pure sacrilege. Please try or buy one. By the way, you can play all the music for the violin or any other c instrument. For most clarinetists who are not symphonic clarinetists (with jobs), this is a great benefit. (There are some performers who request the clarinetist in the orchestra to play the Beethoven clarinet solo on the C clarinet. Why? It is original in many caes, and it sounds better, travels better and is more in tune.)
You can make a better sound, have more endurance, be more in tune, play more music than you every realized existed. You vastly outnumber almost all other clarinetists, so get a C, a digital piano, which will fit easily in your room, your living room, is easily movable.
The three Schubert Sonatinas for Violin, Opus 137 are gorgeous, completely playable , and they work perfectly with piano, and , a digital will save you time, money, and tylenol.
If you wish to play any clarinet sonata, you need to transpose the part, or have it transposed digitally. You will sound better.
Compared to acoustic pianos, digital pianos are generally far less expensive.
Most models are smaller and considerably lighter, but there are large ones as well.
They have no strings and thus do not require tuning.
Depending on the digital piano, they may include many more instrument sounds including strings, guitars, organs, and more.
They are much more likely to incorporate a MIDI implementation.
They may have more features to assist in learning and composition.
They usually include headphone output.
They often have a transposition feature.
They do not require the use of microphones, eliminating the problem of audio feedback in sound reinforcement, as well as simplifying the recording process.
Get a C. They are truly joyous to play.
Have a ball.
