Frequently asked questions

Why do I need Classical Fingers?

I have been learning for a number of years. Do I still need Classical Fingers?


Yes! The chances are that you have picked up some bad habits along the way regarding your finger position and height. This will slow down your progress, especially with faster runs and higher notes.




Do the magnetic bands fit on all barrel sizes?


Yes! The Magnetic bands are specifically engineered to be strong yet flexible enough to stretch over larger barrel sizes such as Backun etc.




Is Classical Fingers availble in stores?


Yes! Classical Fingers is available online and at select stores in different countries. A list of trusted stockists can be located on the Contact page.

How do I store Classical Fingers?

Do I need Classical Fingers during every practice?


No. Classical Fingers is a great learning tool but once you can feel the improvement in your playing, remove the guard and see if your fingers remain in the correct position when you play without it. However, it is advised to use Classical Fingers as much as possible - the more you use Classical Fingers, the better you will play!




Does Classical Fingers work on all clarinets?


Classical Fingers is designed to work on the majority of Bb clarinets, however it DOES NOT WORK ON GERMAN SYSTEM CLARINETS. Some other clarinets may also vary slightly regarding the set-up due to the age or brand. The general rule is if a clarinet lyre can fit on the middle joint, then the Magnetic Bands will fit and Classical Fingers will work.
