a new system available on all our professional B-flat and A clarinets : Présence, Privilège, Signature and Recital. This innovation combines a new generation resin into the wood, allowing better stability and longevity of the instrument, all while preserving the acoustic qualities of a wooden clarinet.
• Wood + resin: the best of both worlds
The interior diameter of the upper joint is enlarged, only on the upper half, to combine the resin. The final boring is then done in a traditional way – by hand and with our same tools. The resin used is a new patented resin. It is from a biomass that does not contain bisphenol A (BPA). BPA has been substituted with molecules derived from biomass.
• Increased longevity with a 10-year warranty
Our production process associated with the sealing properties of the resin create a hermetic envelope which prevents the infiltration of humidity in the wood fibers. Henri SELMER Paris solved the problem of cracks on the most critical part of the instrument, the upper joint, and offer a 10-year warranty.
Thirty clarinetists from different climate zones around the world particularly affected by cracks tested the longevity of the Evolution for five years, and they proved the reliability of the system.
• The acoustic quality of the preserved wooden clarinet
Scientific studies along with blind acoustic tests demonstrated that there is no notable difference in sound between traditional clarinets and EVOLUTION system clarinets..
