For about twenty years, the bass clarinet has enjoyed a boom thanks to a broadened repertoire. A major player in this dynamic, SELMER Paris has accompanied this evolution by bringing constant improvements to a range widely praised for its acoustic qualities. The “PRIVILEGE" bass clarinet marks a decisive step forward in the development of the instrument while keeping the basic design which made the previous models so successful. It combines strikingly easy blowing and a round, warm sound that has gained in homogeneity and power. Its versatility also enables real work on the sound imprint. Tuning is very much improved and balanced over all registers.
