Solist Student Clarinet
Performance | Quality | Value
Our Solist brand of instruments are instruments that are built exclusively for us with the student player and budget in mind. We realize that times are tough and especially when shopping for a first year player, many parents do not want to or simply cannot afford to go spend $600+ on a student clarinet. Sadly, this has also opened up the market for many inferior quality clarinets to be sold on auction sites, in swap meets and other stores that are simply looking for the lowest cost instrument that can be sold.
This is simply unacceptable for a new student. New students NEED a high quality student clarinet in order for them to grow and progress and enjoy playing music. Inferior instruments detract from this and make it difficult for the student to progress commonly leading the student to simply stop playing all together.
Our Solist Student Clarinet is the answer to this dilemma.
What is Solist?
Solist instruments are designed for Kessler & Sons Music to meet our exacting standards. We put focus on the core materials and design in order to provide you with a better student clarinet for an affordable price. As a repair shop, we designed our student clarinet to provide great durability and performance.
Pads – what’s the difference?
Many people do not realize the difference that the quality of pad makes to both performance and as well to your maintenance costs. Most of the student clarinet offerings on the low cost market will use a basic single bladder pad that is usually blown out and in need of replacement within 12-24 months! That means you have to repad it within 2 years! That’s unacceptable.
We make sure to use the highest quality traditional dual bladder pads in our Solist student clarinet. These pads give better performance than cheap pads and have a life expectancy of 4-7 YEARS! Granted, you still have to maintain your student clarinet properly, bit as long as you do, our Solist student clarinet will last far longer than most student clarinet models and give exceptional performance!
Every student clarinet we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on the student clarinet is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, a clarinet (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours!
This is why we perform our setup (in our www.ClarinetRepairs.com ProShop) on your student clarinet before delivering it to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your new clarinet setup flawlessly!
