Therefore, by definition, all blown > musical instruments will have a fundamental frequency of 2L.
Hi,not quite: clarinets sound an octave lower than you would expect when you regard their length. They behave like stopped organ pipes. I don't know exactly why -- it comes from their cylindrical bore. (Saxophones have a conical bore and allthough they have mouthpieces very similar to clarinets they are as long as other wind instruments.)
I think the _wavelength_ (not the frequency) of non-clarinet wind instruments is 2 times the length of the instrument.
