The Clarineau is the outstanding entry-level instrument for those who want to approach the instruments of modern reed instruments. The Clarineau grips like a recorder in the lower octave, making it easier to prepare for these unique members of the woodwind family.
It was developed at the suggestion of 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 Clarineau with the article number: 817-076K is delivered with the handle: German handle.
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.
The precursor of today's clarinet is the chalumeau. This instrument is blown on with an approach comparable to the modern clarinet approach.
The Clarineau combines in a unique way the warmth of the historic Chalumeau with the advantages of today's clarinet mouthpieces.
Because a wind instrument can only sound as good as the mouthpiece, we deliver our instruments with a high quality Boehm Bb clarinet mouthpiece. That was specially adapted and adapted to the Clarineau.
The reeds are produced for us in Germany by a noble craftsman. The cane wood used is free of pesticides and harmful substances.
We believe that these small but subtle differences distinguish Clarineaus in terms of quality.
We consider it to be the central task of an instrument maker to pay attention to these points when manufacturing an instrument.
The instrument is made of well seasoned wood. The wood was treated with paraffin for impregnation and oiled with a special vegetable oil mixture.
The sound characteristics
This special feature is largely due to the clever combination of the special model with the advantages of the pearwood material used.
The pearwood material used gives the Clarineaus their particularly soft and warm sound.
id=3;The instruments that are built with flaps have a unique construction. This construction reliably protects the cushions and springs of the individual flaps.
Since the flaps are almost completely integrated into the body, damage can be virtually ruled out.
The instrument is multi-part and consists of the following parts: 2-part (Boehm clarinet mouthpiece, lower part). It weighs 0.147 kilograms without packaging and accessories.
Packaging and accessories
The packaging included in the delivery is a multi-part cotton bag. The model is supplied as standard with the following accessories: Care oil, wiper rod, dry cloth, cone grease, care instructions, fingering chart
The optional extras
As an optional extra, you can also order the Clarineau with a GF fabric blade screw. The fabric blade screw significantly facilitates the fastening of the blade and enables a tighter blade fit.
The GF woven blade screw, along with the mouthpiece and the body, has an influence on the response and sound of the instrument that should not be underestimated.
The gold-plated fabric blade screw fits perfectly like a tailor-made suit on the mouthpiece and fixes the blade so securely and quickly.
Due to the patented 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 desired position.
The safety ring on the thread of the mechanism prevents the mouthpiece from being scratched when the blade screw is placed on it. The crosshair printed on the band of the blade makes it much easier for you to set up the blade.
