Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0837450A1] A reed retainer, especially for a clarinet, consists of two split rings (1, 2) of a supple material, such as a metal, alloy or plastic, which pass round the mouthpiece of the instrument and are held in place by fastening screws. The split rings are connected by lengthwise strips (5) running parallel to the axis of the instrument's mouthpiece, and the retainer also has two fixed lengthwise rods (11) which are situated between the strips (5) and hold the reed in place. The two rods can be joined together at their ends by cross-pieces to make a separate assembly.
