DR TOOT presents a brand new SeleS "Prologue" Bb clarinet by Henri Selmer Paris. The SeleS is a new brand created by Selmer Paris in 2014. This is the second model of Bb clarinet under the brand SeleS.
The Prologue is the latest ebony advanced student model Bb clarinet. It is enriched with the experience and ingenuity of Henri SELMER Paris through the company’s history of conception and fabrication of clarinets of quality, recognised throughout the world.
Light and easy to play, the Prologue clarinet offers immediate comfort. With ergonomic key work specially designed for clarinettists of all levels that enables a natural and rapid adaptation to the instrument.
Ease of response and emission is ensured through its specifically designed bore, as well as enormous flexibility across all registers of the instrument and homogeneity of sound from top to bottom.
Selmer’s acoustic research has allowed for an optimisation of the instrument’s intonation, which puts the Prologue in a remarkable position in its category.
This particular clarinet is without an Eb lever, however it is also available with an optional Eb lever.
NEW SILVER-PLATING PROCESS
The keywork silver-plating of the Prologue clarinet is obtained through a new technology different from the one used for other Henri SELMER Paris clarinet models.
It is specially adapted for student range instruments. A coat of protective product is affixed onto the silver-plating making it more resistant to oxidation and scratches.
The clarinet does not require any special maintenance regarding the keywork. In order to clean the keys, just use a plain microfiber cloth. Avoid using abrasive products for cleaning the keys.
