Montreux is in general, the perfect brand for beginners. They produce high quality, robust orchestral brass and woodwind instruments, designed with the beginners in mind. They have been tried and tested in education over a number of years. This Montreux Bb Clarinet is the perfect example. It is a very well-made instrument that features off-set trill keys, power forged nickel silver keys and undercut tone holes. Constructed with ABS body in a matte wood finish, the instrument is light with an responsive tone through the range. Supplied with this clarinet is a mouthpiece, mouthpiece cap, ligature, beginner reed, cleaning cloth and cork grease. Crazy right! But we can’t forget the case it comes in. It has a stylish exterior and soft, moulded interior. The case features two accessory pockets, one on the outside and one inside, and it even comes with detachable shoulder straps so you can transport your clarinet even easier. You can receive all of this, for such an affordable price! If this isn’t enough, take a look at the Beginner Pack which includes all of the above and more!

  • Not 1, but 10 reeds for when you accidentally chip your current reed. Even I’m guilty of doing it.
  • A stand to hold your clarinet whilst you are not playing to help reduce the risk of damage.
  • A care kit to keep your clarinet in tip top condition and playing for longer.
