Ridenour Lyrique Bb Clarinet
The New Lyrique is Ridenour Clarinet Productâ€™s unique Custom model, specially designed by Tom Ridenour. The Lyrique RCP-576bc is not a factory production model.
Each Custom model clarinet is individually hand tuned and set up by Tom himselfâ€“â€“he has no assistants. Performance features include an advanced, polycylindrical custom bore design. The polycylindrical configuration is not a mere copy of past bore designs; designs that achieve increased tonal depth only at the expense of even response and tonal stabilityâ€“â€“but is part of an overall acoustical design that results in a more perfect balance in resistance from hand to hand and register to register.
The body of the Lyrique is made from pure, natural, unalloyed hard rubber (a.k.a. ebonite). The ebonite brings many positive qualities to the Lyriqueâ€™s acoustical formula: tonal warmth, resonance, evenness of response, and tonal fullness and stability of upper register tonesâ€“â€“ all are characteristic of fine, well-designed ebonite clarinets. The use of ebonite also results in much greater consistency in production as well as providing bore dimensional stability in a wide range of weather and seasonal conditions.
