Selmer Paris B16Prologue Silver Plated

The Prologue clarinet is enriched with the experience and ingenuity of Henri SELMER Paris through the company's history of conception and fabrication of clarinets of quality, recognized throughout the world. Light and easy to play, the Prologue clarinet offers immediate comfort. With ergonomic keywork specially designed for clarinetists of all levels that enables a natural and rapid adaptation to the instrument. Ease of response and emission is ensured through its specifically designed bore, as well as enormous flexibility across all registers of the instrument and homogeneity of sound from top to bottom. Our acoustic research has allowed for an optimization of the instrument's intonation, which puts the Prologue in a remarkable position in its category. The Prologue clarinet is available in Bb.

The instrument is also available with an optional Eb lever.

"The tuning, flexibility, and weight of the Prologue clarinet meet a real need for amateurs, students and professors." -Béatrice Berne, Professor at the Clermont-Ferrand Conservatory and Director of Kaïros ensemble

"A rich sound, luminous and focussed, the reassuring stability of intonation… for a maximum of musical pleasure!" -Philippe Berrod, Principal clarinet of the Paris Orchestra and Professor at the Paris CNSMD

"A student clarinet with a professional sound and enjoyable to play." -Alessandro Carbonare, Principal clarinet of the Rome Santa Cecilia Orchestra

"The Prologue is a very fluid, homogeneous and easy to play clarinet." -Jerome Verhaeghe, Principal clarinet of the Paris Opera Orchestra and Professor at the Paris (XIIIe) Conservatory

SILVER-PLATING PROCESS

The keywork silver-plating of the Prologue clarinet is obtained through a new technology different from the one used for other Henri SELMER Paris clarinet models. It is specially adapted for student range instruments.

A coat of protective product is affixed onto the silver-plating making it more resistant to oxidation and scratches.

Your clarinet does not require any special maintenance regarding the keywork. In order to clean the keys, just use a plain microfiber cloth. Avoid using abrasive products for cleaning the keys.
