It features a chromatic range that reaches nearly two octaves - from C4 (middle C) to A5, is comfortable to play, has a genuine clarinet mouthpiece with ligature, cap and reed and is great for beginners learning a reed instrument for the first time, and is very popular as a portable instrument for experienced clarinet and saxophone players.
The Pocket Clarinet is suitable for many types of music ~ including Renaissance, Baroque, Blues, Jazz, Folk, and Gospel. It is very portable, easy to maintain, and extremely fun to play! It sounds like a cross between a clarinet and a saxophone, and has great volume.
Each one is handturned, and hand tuned electronically to concert pitch A 440. Great care is taken to ensure each instrument is in tune ~ with the undersanding that all reed instruments give the player the the amazing ability to bend notes. Each one has an interesting grain pattern and may include natural color variation and/or mineral stains and come with an Instruction Sheet, Fingering Chart, Songs, Thumb Rest, Cleaning Swab, Cork Grease, Spare Reed, Cap, and your choice of a deluxe leather or Pendleton wool bag. Heritage Music makes the deluxe leather bags for the Maui Xaphoon and our Pocket Clarinet fits in the same great bag - it has a belt loop on the back and a pocket in the front for storing your spare reed.
