SELMER PARIS RECITAL Bb 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.
Warm and dark.
Clarinetists preferring a darker, warmer sound will prefer the Recital. A highly tapered bore combines with a thicker grenadilla wood body to deliver a lush clarinet tone. An optional resonance key for the Recital provides additional venting for a clearer low F. Known for their smooth, butter-like action, Selmer Paris clarinets are a delicious combination of dark, focused sound and playability. Their silver-plated keys deliver a professional appearance and a positive no-slip feel while the adjustable thumb rests make playing more comfortable. Your performance will be aided by blue steel needle springs that provide quick and light key action, included short and long barrels, and a Selmer Paris hard rubber mouthpiece.
