Klose Bb 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, mouthpiece cap, swab, cork grease and a 6 year limited lifetime warranty on parts and workmanship.
