History of the clarinet?

Music historians believe that the first clarinet was made in 1700 by Johann Christoph Denner, a German instrument maker living in Nierenberg, Germany. The clarinet was modeled on an early instrument called chalumeau. The chalumeau was at its best playing low notes, whereas the high notes were of poor quality. Johann discovered that by adding an additional finger hole in the upper end of the tube, a higher range of notes could be reached. To improve the reliability of the high notes, the thick, crudely shaped reed of the chalumeau was made narrower and more slender. In fact the first clarinet was simply a high-sounding chalumeau. Early clarinets sounded more like a trumpet when heard from a distance. Johann Denner died in 1707, but his work was carried on by his son, Jacob Denner, who reshaped the end of the tube into a bell to improve the projection of sound, and increased the range of notes. To improve the accuracy of drilling the tube, and to make tuning easier, the body of the new instrument was made in several closely fitting jointed sections. During the eighteenth century, instrument makers continued to remodel and improve the clarinet, concentrating particularly on the fingering system. By 1750, the clarinet had made great strides since Denner's first model, and composers were beginning to include it in their work. As the nineteenth century wore on, other instrument makers, including Adolphe Sax, continued to adjust and modify the clarinet. Today a variety of different instruments and fingering systems are in use.

What is the history of a clarinet?

I wrote this myself. Although I'm not quite done with it, I hope it helps. It will surely be better than the last 'answer'. The clarinet has a long history starting in Germany where it was created in 1690 by Johann Cristoph Denner. It was originally made from wood, but is now made from ebonite. The clarinet is most important in the woodwind section, it has a very wide range. It ranges from E below middle C to A, three and one half octaves above middle C. There are thirteen types of clarinets, but the most common is the B-Flat, it has eighteen holes. It continued to be refined, by adding more keys to improve it's range and tone. Mozart and Johannes Brahm brought the clarinet into popularity in orchestral music. He loved the clarinet, He was also the first composer to use the clarinet in a symphony. In 1843 the clarinet was improved when Hyacinthe Klose and Auguste Buffet adapted the Boehm Fingering system to the clarinet. The clarinet is a single-reed woodwind instrument. The clarinet evolved from an earlier instrument called the chalumeau, the first true single reed instrument. Johann Cristoph Denner of Numberburg, with the help of his son Jacob improved the chalumeau and created a new instrument called the clarinet. Denner added two new keys to the chalumeau and increased that instruments range by over two octaves. He improved the bell and created a better mouthpiece. About 2700 B.C. the Egyptians called the zummara (or memet) . It was a single reed instrument, it was like the clarinet, but it had a double bore like the greek instrument called the aulos (a double oboe). The usual material used to make instruments, boxwood, with heteroglot reed (seprate to the instrument) tied to the upper-side of the mouthpiece, vibrated by the upper lip. A major difference between the chalumeau was the 'speaker key' ( Register key ) causing the instrument to over-blow, creating a higher sound for the instrument. This register is known as the clarino register (a reference to a style of trumpet playing) is known as the origin of the name of the instrument, the clarinet. Johann equipped it with a bell by enlarging the bore. The mouthpiece and barrel joint are made in one piece and with Denner's additional key the modern clarinet is a two-keyed instrument. The name "clarinet" was not mentioned until 1710, nearly a decade after Denner created the first playable clarinet. Since Denner worked in Nuremburg and the clarinet first appeared in the band it is said that Denner gave the clarinet it's name. In 1710 the Graf (Duke) ordered two clarinets from Jacob Denner for his musicians. In 1712 four clarinets made out of boxwood were bought by the Nuremburg town band (Ratsmusik). During the 1700s the clarinet underwent many innovations. The shape of the tone holes was experimented to see how it with affect the sound of the clarinet, The keys were also altered. Iwan Muller created the first thirteen keyed model.
