The Clarineau is the student instrument that has been tried and tested for many years for those who want to approach the instruments clarinet or saxophone. The fingering of the Clarineaus is similar to that of the recorder in the lower octave, making it easier to prepare for these fascinating woodwinds.
The instrument was developed in close cooperation with Thomas Denig, clarinet teacher at the Freie Musikschule Hamburg.
The range: chromatic c' - g". Experienced musicians can achieve a larger range.
Wise of grip
The lower part of the model with the article number: 827-072KU is produced in the fingering: Baroque fingering.
The bore of the lower part
The geometry of the inner bore of the Clarineaus is cylindrical. This type of drilling process gives the model its typical sound.
In principle, instruments with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than reed instruments with a narrower bore.
You need a separate mouthpiece
The lower part is optimized for a Bb clarinet mouthpiece in Böhmbauweise. This mouthpiece is not included in the delivery.
The instrument is made of tonewood that has been matured for many years. The wood was impregnated with paraffin to protect it from dirt and moisture and then oiled with vegetable oil.
This property is largely due to the masterful combination of the groundbreaking design in combination with the qualities of the pearwood used.
The pearwood material used gives the instruments their incomparably warm and soft sound.
The Clarineaus, which are built with flaps, use a unique design of the flap bearing. This construction protects the springs and cushions of the flaps safely.
Since most of the flaps are integrated into the body, damage can be virtually ruled out even in rough school conditions.
The Clarineau lower part consists of the following parts: 1-piece. The lower part weighs 0.143 kilograms net.
