With the DooD, Nuvo has once again reinvented the rules and brought a new concept for woodwind music making to the market! This instrument allows young children to start taking their first steps with a single reed instrument earlier than would otherwise have been possible. In addition, the DooD can add another tonal shade to primary music making ensembles.
A distant descendant of the traditional French instrument the Chalumeau, the DooD utilises the same fingering system as a recorder. This is backed up by a simple, durable key cover system which helps smaller hands to close the tone holes. The instrument has a chromatic range of one octave. The DooD is supplied with the same mouthpiece usually found on the Nuvo Clarineo.
Two Nuvo reeds, a fingering chart and an instrument case are included as part of the set. In time, the player can move on either to stronger Nuvo reeds or even traditional cane reeds - Eb clarinet reeds are also compatible with the mouthpiece. The DooD is waterproof and therefore very easy to clean - in a bowl of washing up, sink or even bath!
