Presence Bb / A Clarinet

Thanks to its innovative bore design, this clarinet has unique acoustic qualities that provide ease of emission, exceptional homogeneity and above all an instrument that is easy to play.

The sound of the Présence clarinet is a mix of harmonic richness, and timbre; essential characteristics to the instrument. Also, the research done on the position and size of the tone holes has given this clarinet unrivalled intonation.

 The Privilège clarinets are exceptionally stable in tuning fork, perfectly adaptable to all acoustics (opera, symphony, harmony, room, studio) and get married easily with other instruments. The perfect medium register temperate (E, F, F, F#, G) wins in brightness and timbre and made of the Privilege of an instrument extremely homogeneous over the whole the range. In addition, most of the notes do not require fingering corrective to be fair, or even correction key.
Raw ebony wood is selected, worked delicately, naturally treated, varnished and waterproof for protection and a top-of-the-range finish, completed by fine engravings on keys and rings.

Recital Bb / A Clarinet

A sophisticated bore, and the matter as well, a particularly selected and worked grenadilla wood, have made possible the genesis of a unique sonority; noble and living matter, the wood itself gives the "Recital" this warm, rich and round tone, with an exceptional presence (diameter of the joints is bigger than a traditional model, by two millimetres).

A significant reserve of power and a very condensed voice favour a generous playing. A really expressive instrument for those who are looking for "a sound". A Bb and A set with an original conception for a rare quality acoustic result.

Signature Bb / A Clarinet

Signature is a unique and unrivalled concept.

The tone, a right compromise between roundness and presence, is a subtle mixing of sweetness and energy.

A centred and easy emission provides a high level control. The tuning is perfectly balanced thanks to its higher toneholes.
