This chapter provides an overview of the classical clarinet's development, organized chronologically by country: France, Belgium, Germany, England, Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Switzerland, and America. Many clarinet-makers are noted for each country, and individual instruments are examined. The important design contributions of Simiot, Müller, and Janssen are discussed; other sections are devoted to 18th- and 19th-century basset clarinets, and Anton Stadler's basset clarinet.
