"With my Blashaus neck on my bass clarinet, the sound, projection, intonation, and response are all dramatically improved. The neck is beautifully crafted, and I would recommend it to any serious bass clarinetist."

Artist – Jack Howell

"The bass clarinet crook comprises a greater part of the instrument than a clarinet barrel does, so it makes sense that there are gains to be had by optimizing it, just as with the barrel, or even more so. I would say that the response over the entire instrument is more immediate and predictable, with particular benefits to articulation. Resistance feels very even and I feel a greater ease in playing, but still plenty of cushion/resistance for louder dynamics. I have always felt aware on bass of the distance between tone holes -- without strict attention, a phrase can sound like a string of different vowels. With this crook, both the bright and dull notes seem largely to have resolved, and the entire range of the instrument feels more compact and focused.
It seems evident that the folks at Das Blashaus know what they are doing. The crook is beautifully made, simply first rate work, not a molecule out of place."

In 2015, his career came full circle when he won the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's principal bass clarinet position.

"Das Feintuning eines Musikers betrifft nicht nur die Musik, sondern auch das Feeling für die Beschaffenheit eines Instrumentes und seines Materials. Umgekehrt ist es für einen Instrumentenmacher nur dann möglich, Verbesserungen an Instrumenten vorzunehmen, wenn er seinen Sinn für die Beschaffenheit und die Physik der Instrumente mit viel Feeling für Musik, Schwingung und Klang zu verbinden vermag.
Diese Symbiose ist dem Blashaus mit der Entwicklung und der Konstruktion der S‐Bögen absolut gelungen. Ich habe die Erfahrung gemacht, dass Anfänger als auch Profis den Unterschied unmittelbar nach den ersten Tönen erfahren. Die offensichtlich verbesserten physikalischen Eigenschaften wirken sich auf die Fülle des Klanges, die Ansprache und auch die Stabilität des Instrumentes sehr positiv aus. Ich spiele den Bogen seit fast 10 Jahren. Er hilft mir sehr dabei, meine musikalischen Vorstellungen leichter umsetzen zu können."

"Mein double double gold Bogen vom Blashaus war Liebe auf den ersten Ton. Ich spiele den Bogen nun schon seit einigen Jahren und bin immer noch begeistert. Der Bogen überzeugt sowohl im Orchester, als auch solistisch und in der Kammermusik dank seiner klaren Ansprache und dem vollen, runden und farbigen Klang in allen Lagen."

"Seit ich den heavyheavy- Bassklarinetten-Bogen vom Blashaus in Zug spiele, habe ich einfach mehr Möglichkeiten, mit verschiedensten Klangfarben zu spielen. Der runde, warme und volle Klang trägt im Saal so gut, dass ich problemlos auch bei gross besetztem Sinfonieorchester gut durchkomme. Und trotzdem kann man damit auch wunderbar fein und agil in kleiner Kammermusik-Besetzung spielen.
Einfach eine grosse Bereicherung!"

"I purchased a Heavy Heavy Steep Angle Gold Blashaus neck for my Selmer Privilege Bass Clarinet a few years ago and it has been a revelation.Frankly, it makes any stock neck feel and sound like a piece of tin. The increase in warmth and projection are amazing throughout the range of the instrument. Ease of articulation and improvement in response of the somewhat stuffy and stubborn notes at the top of the staff are all enhanced. The neck is 75% heavier than standard necks, rigidly braced, finished like satin inside and out and is just a work of art.
While warming up at the first Pacific Symphonic Wind Ensemble rehearsal I attended using the Blashaus neck, the Baritone Saxophonist behind me and our principal clarinetist both looked up in astonishment at the first notes from my now enhanced instrument. After playing some solos at the latest WASBE conference in San Jose, a conductor I had not worked with in over a year approached me, and said, “Chuck, have you changed something in your setup? There is something new in your sound!
Change your life today! Invest in a Blashaus Bass Clarinet neck!"

Artist – Christoph Pepe Auer

"The bass clarinet neck from Blashaus is a masterpiece! It helps the bass clarinet player to master the most difficult part of the instrument’s nature: flexibility of the whole range. Further it creates an enjoyable feeling while playing. It even makes the sound more brilliant and it increases the variety in your volume. Finally the quality of the material is so solid that you can bring it on tour or do unusual musical experiments without having to fear to break it."

"The bass clarinet neck from Blashaus increases the variety of both timbres and dynamics and improves the sound projection and consistency between the various registers.
I no longer have to exert myself during a solo being accompanied by a rhythm section. In delicate passages I obtain a surrounding sound and I have the impression that it generates a more spacious sound. The Suter’s neck makes the instrument sing!"

"Music is all about sound and each musician carries within himself the precise idea about his/her personal sound!!
The two Blashaus bass clarinet necks I use now for years are an incredible support on the lifelong journey of getting closer to my musical identity.
Martin Suter’s masterpieces of craftsmanship not only improve all aspects of bass clarinet playing like intonation, air flow, control, flexibility etc. etc. In the best moments they let you forget about the fact that you’re playing such a huge instrument. Then the music really happens!! And this is the biggest gift you can give to a musican. Thank you so much, Martin!!"

I have been using the "DAS BLASHAUS" bass clarinet neck on my Buffet Prestige for a couple of years now and was so impressed from the first moment as to how thick and dense the tone sounded with this neck.  I was also happy to discover how the neck was able to even out all the tones to the same level of resistance and tone color producing a powerful and yet stabile, flexible sound.

"I was first introduced to the Blashaus crook by my friend a virtuoso clarinet and bass clarinet player Mathias Muller during a demonstration of the Blashaus SABre bass clarinet. I knew as soon as I tried the gold plated crook I now use, that I would have to have one.
Since then I have gone on to supply many others to colleagues and customers of mine in the UK. The crook offers  many improvements to the bass clarinet  including greater sonority, stability and depth of sound, it also makes the tuning more reliable and provides all of this with less effort from the player, it really is like adding a turbo charger to your instrument!
On one occasion recently I was invited to play with a National Opera company on bass clarinet in a Puccini Opera. Their regular bass clarinet player was sitting next to me and after the first act, he turned to me and said ” I have just spent to whole act working out what I can sell to buy on of those crooks!” and he bought one soon after!
What better recommendation can I give than that!"

This base clarinet neck overs the perfect amount of resistance which produces a beautiful warm sound. I recently used the neck that came with the horn and after a few notes, put it back in the case. The only neck that I will use on my bass clarinet is Das Blashaus!

"The next arrived and I could not be happier. Going over the throat is a joy, all areas of the horn feel richer and fatter, projecting better too perhaps.The vibrations in my mouth/lips are much more pronounced which informs me the vibrations in my horn are as well. Going over the throat is a joy, all the notes speak more clearly, in tune and with more presence than ever before. It feels like I am playing a whole new horn.

"The bass clarinet neck from Blashaus increases everything, even my musical soul. That is the why helps intonation, air flow, stability, etc, when I play.Also, I used to forget about the fact I'm playing such a huge instrument.
