"Clarinet Fingering Charts [has a] list of all available fingering charts for Boehm-, Albert-, and Oehler-system clarinets and Kinderklarinettes. The Boehm-system clarinet is widely used in bands and orchestras, although the Oehler- and Albert-system clarinets are commonly used in some regions, such as central Europe.
