A Clarinets are pitched a semitone below the B Flat Clarinet. Used by orchestral players, chamber musicians and soloists, these are usually wooden instruments. If you are not sure what type of clarinet you need it’s probably a B Flat Clarinet.
We stock A Clarinets by Buffet, Uebel, Yamaha and Selmer. The most popular first “A” is the Buffet E13 with the Uebel Advantage coming a close second. Ideally a player’s Bb and A instruments should match well to give a uniformity of tone when swapping between the two as they will usually be required within the same performance.
Clarinet Reeds can be purchased singly with free postage within the UK.
