For the advanced student, the OCL500 'Bb' clarinet, with its ebony body, barrel and bell, offers an exceptional instrument for the discerning player.
The clarinet is one of the most popular woodwind instruments for new players. It is affordable, portable and is used for many styles of music in orchestra, wind band and jazz.
All models in the Odyssey range of high quality brass band and orchestral instruments have been meticulously designed down to the finest details by Peter Pollard. It’s hardly surprising that, with over 50 years experience and having listened to the ‘wants’ of countless high profile musicians, this master craftsman is one of the most sought after custom brass and woodwind builders in the world.
At Odyssey, we recognise the significant contribution that an instrument makes to the willingness of a student to persevere, practice, pursue the process of learning to control and master the instrument, enjoy making music and progress.
The response and intonation are based on the expectations of teachers and experienced players. Materials have been carefully chosen to enhance the sound and playability of the instrument and the highest quality European pads and springs are used. For the more advanced student the Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' Ebony bodied Clarinet, comparable to instruments a class above, offers a wide tonal sound – richer and warmer.
The Odyssey Premiere 'Bb' Clarinet with its attractive price tag is just a few of the features that have made the Odyssey Ebony Body Clarinet a favourite with musicians and teachers around the world. Designed by Peter Pollard to be easy blowing, with great tonality and exceptional playability, ensuring those first steps are giant leaps.
