“The acoustical design of the modern E-flat Soprano clarinet permits and promotes several unique sonic qualities (found in conventional sounds) from which many of today's new techniques have been derived.

The Eb Soprano allows an incredible range of colors, not only throughout its range, but on every pitch! These are apparent not only in single sounds, but in multiple sounds as well. Additionally, the instrument is capable of a broad range of dynamics, from the virtually inaudible to FF. The E-flat also lends itself to extremes of technical activity in speed, register, and density of pitches for a broad range of different musical characters.

Many composers, during the last several decades, have extended the techniques of players simply by writing virtuosic music involving conventional sounds – many fast notes with rapid register leaps and extreme dynamic contrasts, for example.” – Tanosaki-Richards
