Instrument details

The first notes and the feel of an instrument are very important for a beginner. They help to develop acoustic capabilities as well as enhancing future artistic development.

The B12 clarinets are made from ABS resin with an appearance and sound similar to that of genuine grenadilla wood. These models are lightweight, strong and easy to clean perfect for even very young players.

The B12 model has a very attractive and traditional design with nickel-plated body rings, straight keywork and a traditional bell ring. The body is buffed to give the appearance of wood.

The nickel silver keywork is cold forged and induction soldered, providing greater stability, precision and quality. The B12 model is mounted with double fish skin pads which ensure excellent sealing.

All models in the student range are equipped with an adjustable thumb rest for correct and comfortable positioning (and a neck strap ring).
