The bass clarinet is, like the Bb clarinet, tuned in B flat. It extends to either E flat or C, depending on the model. However there are no student models, that extend to the low C.
The bass clarinet has a curved metal neck and an upturned bell similar to the saxophone's, but as the rest of the clarinet the family, it is most often made from grenadilla wood.
Since the middle of the 19th century the bass clarinet has, alongside the bassoon, been the bass voice of the symphony orchestra's woodwind section. It has since been used as a solo instrument as well, notably in the works of Richard Wagner, who was one of the earliest composers to make use of the bass clarinets dark and warm timbre. 

All of our clarinets are adjusted and readied at our specialist workshop, and are sold with a 12 months guarantee of unlimited access to adjustments.
