throat tone


The tones produced when the fewest number of fingers are depressed on the keys or over the holes of the on a clarinet. This creates the length of the instrument as the distance from the mouthpiece to the first set of holes. There is a "throaty" or "husky" quality to the sound and is more pronounced in the larger clarinets.
