Klose BE13 Wood Clarinet

Hyacinthe Klose was a professor at the Paris Conservatory of Music and in 1843 he and Auguste Buffet adapted and improved the Boehm fingering system for the clarinet. This reorganized fingering system remains popular today. With these technical developments in key-work, improvements in the dynamic range and intonation, the clarinet has found a place and has become a prominent instrument in the genres of symphonic, operatic, band, chamber and solo work.

The Klose clarinets were designed for the market in the USA and offer award-winning features such as beautiful and mellow sound quality, good intonation, functional reliability and perfect workmanship at a very reasonable price. Each Klose clarinet has specific final undercutting and bore adjustments made and is play tested before delivery. All Klose clarinets come with a high quality case, mouthpiece, ligature, cap, swab and cork grease. These remarkable clarinets have a 6 year limited lifetime warranty on parts and workmanship.

A Brief History Of The Clarinet:

While Johann Denner is given credit in 1690 for the invention of the modern day Clarinet. H. Klose is given credit for its improvement and adaptation of the Boehm Flute Key to the instrument. H. Klose was a professor at the Paris Conservatory Of Music.

The Boehm Fingering System which was developed by Theobald Boehm for Flutes, was adapted to Clarinets by H. Klose and Auguste Buffet. In 1843, The Reorganized Fingering System for the Clarinet was successfully developed. This is the fingering system that remains popular today. The basic idea was to place the tone holes more acoustically correct. With an intricate system of keys and springs, H. Klose was able to produce a more in-tune and stable instrument.

Mozart wrote his first Clarinet Concerto for an instrument designed by H. Klose. The Mid-1800’S was known as The Romantic Era. The Romantic Era can be viewed as the period in which the Clarinet came into its own. With technical development in key-work, improvements in the dynamic range and intonation, the Clarinet has found a place and has become a prominent instrument in the genres of symphonic, operatic, band, chamber and solo work.
