What's behind
conception

For four years, the Henri SELMER Paris development team and orchestra clarinet players from different countries brought together for this project, have been combining their knowledge and experience to produce the Muse set of professional clarinets.


The Muse clarinets have a clear, colorful, warm tone. Musicians are also attracted by its ease of response, its accuracy and its great homogeneity (in the intervals and switching from note to note).

  • New conical bores for both 64 and 65mm barrels
  • New conical bores of the body
  • G# C# precision optimized by a raised tone hole
  • New geometry of the holes
  • New bell bores
  • Placement and correction tone hole of low F and E notes on the lower joint (available on the A and Bb clarinet)

Details Muse

The Muse clarinet offers an ergonomic comfort similar to the one on our Privilège and Présence models, tested by numerous clarinetists worldwide. The design of the keywork allows for a very quick adaptation to the instrument. In addition, the A clarinet* has an adjustable thumb spatula for the low F and E correction key (also available on the Bb clarinet).

Clarinet Muse

The original laser engraving on the bottom body of the instrument is inspired by the values of generosity, listening and transmission of the musical practice. The feather symbolizes lightness and creative freedom.

To complete their aesthetics, the Muse clarinets have two flat black chrome-plated metal rings, as well as two silver-plated rings with a new design.

Muse engraving

The Muse clarinet is supplied with the following accessories:

  • Echo mouthpiece: Echo is a universal mouthpiece suitable for all clarinetists and the first Henri SELMER Paris clarinet mouthpiece to be entirely manufactured on a digitally controlled machine, giving it an unprecedented production stability.
  • PRiSMe single or double case
  • Silver-plated ligature and cap
  • Maintenance kit (swab, cork grease, soft cloth)
  • Inspirational notebook: offered with every purchase of a Muse clarinet, this exclusive 160-page notebook was created by Henri SELMER Paris in collaboration with clarinetist Kinan Azmeh. This notebook will unleash the creativity of each artist through unique reflections and exercises.

"The Muse takes away many of the inherent technical challenges of playing the clarinet. With this new-found freedom, I am able to strive for deeper artistic expression. I finally have an instrument that allows me to reach my full potential.  "
Wesley Ferreira
"The Muse clarinets are surprisingly easy to use, with a sound that remains centred on the entire length of the instrument. The left-hand notes are naturally rounded and colorful, making it extremely easy to move between registers."
Sylvie Hue
"The Muse clarinet is a real revolution in the world of modern clarinets. It offers clarity in tone, ease of use, great precision and, most importantly, a sound that has soul, that speaks to you.  "
Florent Pujuila
"I love the very soft, lively sound, I would even say that the Muse clarinets are “charming”. All the registers are very consistent and ergonomic, very comfortable, allowing me to play extremely technical passages with great confidence."
Maura Marinucci
"In an orchestra, its great stability of precision along with this richness of sound, toned, ample and rounded, give Muse its “chameleon” character, which is vital for blending with different harmonious instruments."
François Sauzeau
"With the Muse clarinets we have designed instruments with tone that have both clarity and depth at the same time. A feeling of flexibility enables you to tackle all the repertoires with ease and to naturally master the intonation, no matter what the nuances."
Philippe Berrod
"The new Selmer Muse is a fantastic synergy of Henri Selmer Paris's best attributes: solid keywork, beautiful balanced sound, intonation, precision and a response that leaves you feeling like you can play all colors and styles with ease."
Mariam Adam
"With the Muse, I feel that I have an infinite color palette and that even the slightest musical intention is immediately audible."
