The Clarineau is the student instrument that has been tried and tested for many years for all those who want to approach the instruments saxophone or clarinet. The fingering of the Clarineaus is similar to that of the recorder in the lower octave, making it easier to get started with these wonderful instruments.
Our Clarineau was developed according to the wishes of Thomas Denig, a clarinet teacher at the Freie Musikschule Hamburg.
The range: chromatic c' - g". Experienced musicians can achieve a larger range.
Wise of grip
The instrument with the item number: 827-072K is offered with the following fingering: Baroque fingering.
The inner bore of the Clarineaus is cylindrical. This type of drilling process gives the instrument its typical sound.
In principle, reed instruments with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than instruments with a narrower bore.
The precursor of the clarinet is the chalumeau. It is blown with an approach, which can be compared with that of the clarinet.
The Clarineau combines in a special way the charm of the historical Chalumeau with the advantages of today's clarinet mouthpieces.
Because it is well known that a woodwind instrument can only sound as good as the mouthpiece allows, we deliver our Clarineaus with a high-quality Boehm Bb clarinet mouthpiece. That was intensively tuned and adapted to the Clarineau.
The leaf is produced in Germany in a small but fine manufactory especially for us. The cane wood used is proven to be free of pesticides.
We believe that these small but subtle differences make Clarineaus so unique. Often it is the sum of the small things that make the whole thing so unique.
The instrument is made of carefully seasoned wood. The wood has been impregnated with paraffin and oiled with a special vegetable oil mixture to protect it from dirt and moisture.
The sound characteristics
This is due to the special combination of the above-average instrument model in symbiosis with the advantages of the pearwood material.
The use of pearwood gives the instruments their unique soft and warm sound.
The Clarineaus, which are built with flaps, use a special design of the flap bearing. This construction reliably protects the cushions and springs of the flaps.
Since a large part of the flaps are integrated into the body, damage can virtually be ruled out.
The instrument is multi-part and consists of the following parts: 2-part (Boehm clarinet mouthpiece, lower part). It weighs 0.143 kilograms without packaging and accessories.
Packaging and accessories
The packaging is a multi-part cotton bag. The instrument is supplied as standard with the appropriate accessories: Care oil, wiper rod, dry cloth, cone grease, care instructions, fingering chart
The optional extras
As an optional accessory, you can also order the instrument with a GF tissue blade screw. This makes it much easier for them to clamp the reed and allows a better fit of the reed.
Thus the GF fabric blade screw, along with the instrument body and mouthpiece, has an influence on the sound and response of the instrument that should not be underestimated.
The tissue leaf screw fits perfectly like a tailor-made suit on the mouthpiece and fixes the leaf so securely and quickly on this.
Due to the special mechanics (left-hand and right-hand threads of the spindle), a symmetrical tensile force acts on the blade when the blade screw is tightened, so that it remains in the position set by you.
The safety ring on the thread of the mechanism prevents the mouthpiece from being scratched when the blade screw is put on. The printed crosshair on the ribbon makes it much easier for you to set up the sheet.
