Kessler Custom Low C Bass Clarinet

Kessler Custom Low C Bass Clarinet

The Kessler Custom Bass Clarinet is an ABS body with nickel plated keys, neck and bell. Kessler horns are student-level, but with some features found only on high-end instruments. It's a great starter horn, and one of the very few I can stand behind.

I understand that, especially with entry-level horns, cost is a primary concern. Therefore, I offer two different setups for these horns: a) Standard setup, b) Pro-level setup. The Standard setup includes basic playability overview, including key and pad-seating adjustments, and as the title implies, it comes standard with the instrument. The pro-level setup is much more extensive, and includes pad re-seating, tone-hole surfacing as needed, key-height adjustments (for tuning), and spring tension adjustments. If you would like something specific altered, I can accommodate most requests, just let me know in the comment field of your order, or email me in advance to discuss.

All earspasm instruments come with a 7-day trial. Please read my trial policy before pulling out that credit card.

Note: if you select the Pro setup, there will be a 10-14 day delay on the shipment...because we need to do that setup! Standard setups ship immediately.

Instrument comes with

  • Standard case with hideaway backpack straps
  • Neck strap, shoulder strap (for case), cork grease, warranty card, etc.
  • Note, the instrument does NOT come with a mouthpiece or ligature. However, you can purchase those here in the shop!


Q: Is this the "Second Gen" Kessler? 
A: Yes. In fact it's the Gen 2.1, with the improved heavier-weight neck and (much!) improved case.

Q: What if I'm in New York and want to try it in person?
A: Come on over! Just send me an email so we can set up an appointment time.

Q: Does the instrument come with a warranty?
A: Yes, it comes with the standard 1-year Kessler warranty. If you ever have any problem with the instrument, I'm your quarterback. I'll take care of the whole process, just let me know you need help, and I'll take it from there.

Q: What happens if it's damaged during shipping?
A: Inspect the package before you sign off at delivery! If there are any issues resulting from shipping, we have taken out an insurance policy to cover damage (and loss). But we need you to document this damage or we can't do anything to help.

Q: If I decide to return it, do also I have to pay return shipping costs?
A: Yes. And you will also want to insure it!

Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes. You can add your shipping address when checking out to see what the shipping costs will be before taking the plunge. Note that VAT and Customs Duties are not included in this cost. With these Kessler instruments in particular, we should discuss a higher-end case than the one that comes with the horn.

I had a Yamaha low Eb but was getting frustrated with its limited range. When I saw Michael was repping instruments I was intrigued by the Kessler - <$3k price point, plastic (a plus for playing outdoors) and capable of getting to low C. I listened to his recordings of each serial number (what a nice web feature) and then called him to ask questions. He actually answered the phone, and spent a lot of time explaining the instrument's qualities to me. I decided to take the plunge. I went with the professional set up and BAM case - awesome! When I received the instrument I had a technical question and Michael FaceTimed me to get the issue resolved. I don't think you can get better customer service anywhere! I'd recommend any of the Earspasm products. They are chosen with expertise and care. Check them out. I'm really happy with my instrument!
