Blowing Pressures in Bassoon, Clarinet, Oboe and Saxophone
Blowing pressures were measured in the mouth cavity of two professional players of each of four reed woodwinds, Bb clarinet, alto saxophone, oboe, and bassoon. The players performed three different tasks: (1) a series of isolated tones at four dynamic levels, (2) the same series with crescendo-diminuendo tones and (3) ascending-descending arpeggio sequences played legato at different dynamic levels. The results show that, within instruments, the players' pressures exhibit similar dependencies of pitch and dynamic levels. Between instruments, clear differences were found with regard to both pressure ranges and dependence on pitch.
