Welcome to our clarinet pages. The clarinet is certainly one of our most popular instruments, and can be heard in military bands, Jazz bands, Orchestras and of course School bands. Student clarinets are generally made from plastic. This helps with sound production as there is less resistance when blowing. They’re marginally lighter in weight and less expensive. Better quality clarinets are made from Grenadilla or African Blackwood. The Bb clarinet is the instrument most players will learn on, however much of the orchestral repertoire is written for clarinet in ‘A’, and ‘Eb’. The manufactures of clarinets are dominated by Yamaha and Buffet Crampon, who are both highly regarded as world leaders in this area.
