The Clarineau is the entry-level instrument recommended by leading teachers for those who wish to approach the instruments of modern reed instruments. 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 according to the wishes of Thomas Denig, a clarinet teacher at the Freie Musikschule Hamburg.
The range: chromatic c' - g". Depending on the approach, experienced musicians will achieve a larger range.
Wise of grip
The lower part with the article number: 817-072KU is produced in the fingering style: Baroque fingering.
The bore of the lower part
The inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical. This type of drilling process gives the Clarineau its typical sound.
In principle, instruments with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than models with a narrower inner 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 treated with paraffin for impregnation and then oiled with vegetable oil.
This feature is largely due to the clever combination of the thoughtful design in the fine tuning with the advantages of the pear tree material used.
The pearwood material used gives the instruments their particularly soft and warm sound.
id=3;For instruments built with keys, a key bearing construction based on historical ideas but perfected by us is used. This construction reliably protects the springs and cushions of the individual flaps.
Since most of the keys are embedded in the body, damage can be virtually ruled out even during hard concert tours.
Construction of the body
The Clarineau lower part consists of the following parts: 1-piece. The lower part weighs 0.147 kilograms net.
