Uebel Superior Clarinet in C - Grenadilla

Uebel Superior Clarinet in C - Grenadilla

If you need a C clarinet, you need a C clarinet. And you need it to sound beautiful, in tune, and be easy to transition to + from as you move between instruments.

Well, thankfully, Uebel designed their C clarinet from the ground up, taking into account all of the challenges inherent in this unique instrument, and has built a real winner. It's a C clarinet that is a joy to play.

As a part of their versatile Superior line, which includes the Plateau Clarinets and Basset Horns, among others, this instrument carries with it a similarity to its siblings, namely a uniquely compact sound that's dark but can carry to the back of a hall when needed.

This Superior C Clarinet has a terrific scale, and comes with not one, not two, but three different barrels for tuning needs. Other thoughtful touches, like an ergonomically-placed Eb/Ab key, and Uebel's proprietary bell modification to improve lower register intonation, come standard. Oh, and it takes a standard Bb mouthpiece and reed, so you don't need to worry about that, either.

Try it for a week. If you don't love it, you can send it back. But please read my trial policy before pulling out that credit card.

Ok, so in summary:

  • Silver plated keys, including Eb/Ab lever that doesn't get in the way
  • Three barrels (44.5, 45.5, 46.5mm)
  • Pochette case (this case, I believe, is a modified Bb clarinet case. You may notice that it's too big for the instrument, but you'll also notice that the instrument fits in it like it was made for the C clarinet.)
  • Leather case cover from a famous-luxury-brand-I'm-not-supposed-to-know-about-and-can't-tell-you-either. But it's suuuuuper nice.

Add this to your growing collection. You'll feel great about it. Your spouse, maybe not so much. (Unless it's my spouse, who loves this C clarinet so much that I may get one for her for her birthday. Shh, don't tell Katherine)
