Budget ebonite Bb clarinet for beginners
Elkhart’s name is synonymous with good value for money and the 100CL Bb clarinet is among their most popular budget instruments. Though it lacks some advanced keywork and offers little in the way of versatility, it performs reliably and responsively with good intonation, making it ideal for beginners taking their first steps towards becoming a clarinettist.
The body is constructed from ebonite with a realistic brushed wood finish. This extremely durable hard rubber is slightly heavier than wood, but isn’t susceptible to cracking and doesn’t get affected by temperature change. Despite its rugged nature, ebonite is also possessed of admirable resonant properties which give the instrument a forgiving pure and mellifluous tone.
Nickel plated keywork, while duller than its silver counterpart, is resilient and comfortable to play. There is also an adjustable thumb rest on the back to ensure a perfect playing position, and a ring for attaching a neck sling to reduce the strain on young players’ back and shoulders caused by the instrument’s weight.
Outfits include a lightweight canvas carry case, mouthpiece, mouthpiece cap, ligature, and care kit. The 100CL also comes with a size 2 reed which may be a little high for a beginner – we recommend starting with a size 1.5.
