The Elkhart brand produces a range of value student instruments and this, the 100CL clarinet outfit, is one of our most popular. The ideal instrument for a complete beginner, this clarinet has everything you need to take you through the first couple of clarinet grades.
The moulded ebonite body is finished in a wood-effect which gives the instrument a smooth texture. This is offset by brushed nickel keywork which, although slightly more dull than silver, is a reliable material on which to learn.
Elkhart have been producing budget instruments for the student market since 1923. By now, they have honed their skills and so know the best way to create reliable instruments for those just starting out in the world of woodwind.
The instrument comes complete with a mouthpiece, ligature and care kit as well as a light-weight canvas carry case. It also comes supplied with a strength two reed. This may be a little strong for a complete beginner. If so, a 1.5 is the most popular choice, and will make it easier for a student to produce an initial sound.
This model is excellent value, and is an ideal beginner instrument that has found its way into many music services and schools.
