Grenadilla Wood Construction Sings With Character
The Protégé clarinet's grenadilla wood body resonates with a rich, lyrical voice all its own. Grenadilla wood is prized for clarinets due to its density, stability and complex overtones. The wood is carefully cured and aged before crafting the clarinet, allowing its natural properties to shine through. The result is an instrument with a warm, expressive tone and desirable flexibility that responds dynamically to a musician's touch.

Ringless Barrel and Bell Unlock Potential
Backun's groundbreaking ringless barrel and bell are standard on the Protégé clarinet, enhancing its tonal qualities and playability. The barrel's exotic wood body and integrated rings improve response and evenness across registers. The Backun bell's innovative shape and wood material also provide a bigger, more resonant low end. Together, these components give the Protégé clarinet a singing, nuanced voice, especially in the altissimo and chalumeau registers.

Premium Keys and Thumb Rest Ensure Top Performance
The Protégé clarinet's silver-plated keys are built to exacting standards, providing a comfortable, reliable mechanism for expressive playing. Their water-resistant pads also support precision and endurance. An adjustable thumb rest allows you to find an optimal hand position for your needs. Overall, the Protégé clarinet's premium keys and accouterments give you the freedom to perform at your best.

Protect Your Investment With a Premium Case
A rugged yet lightweight case is included to shield your Protégé clarinet from damage in transit or storage. Its padded, water-resistant shell and compartmentalized interior provide ample protection for the clarinet and accessories. Carry handles and a shoulder strap make the case comfortable to transport wherever your musical pursuits take you.
