Tonal Tunnels: Craft Your Clarinet's Inner Voice

Sculpt Your Sound with Natural Tones

The inside shape of your clarinet's barrel, called the bore, really matters. It changes how easy it is to play and how your music sounds. Some bores let you play smooth and easy, and others make the sound deep and full. Just like picking the type of wood, choosing a bore is about making your clarinet sound just the way you like. Whether you’re playing fast notes or long, slow tunes, we have a bore that will help you hit every note just right.
