The Aidoni Original Bore clarinet barrel is the result of a long and meticulous process of experimentation. It offers a quite open bore at the top producing an easy, free blowing tone. Allowing a resonant feeling while playing.
Martin Fröst uses Aidoni grenadilla barrels on all his clarinets.
The barrel has an inner plastic tube with a reverse taper, and the tube is partially covered with a thin brass pipe. The result is a perfectly balanced barrel with exquisite intonation, and a resonant and focused sound. The use of a plastic inner tube allows a precisely measured bore, keeping its dimensions constant. The Aidoni barrel reaches the right temperature and pitch faster than a traditional wood barrel.
Avaiable in Grenadilla and Cocobolo for Bb and A clarinet.
