Exclusive to Howarth of London and made to 440Hz by our own specifications, the RZ clarinets follow the famous tradition of hand crafted musical instruments in Kraslice, Czech Republic. They are a work of affection, beauty and mastery by highly skilled czech craftsmen, who endow the instrument with their finest craftsmanship and experience.
The RZ clarinets are crafted out of high quality, naturally long seasoned Grenadilla wood, unstained to keep the natural finish. The main features include the new polycilindrical bore along with optimized tone hole positions. Great attention during the manufacturing process is dedicated to the 18 keys, which appeal by their beautiful design, impress by their superb ergonomics and persuade by their excellent workmanship beginning with key refining up to premium silverplating for long durability. This unique impression is supported by carbon-fibre joint rings and the overall clarinet design is completed by individually developed barrels and bells made of Grenadilla or optionally Cocobolo wood.
The RZ Clarinets have been designed with the professional player in mind. They feature pure intonation, easy response in all the registers and a beautifully even, warm and round sound. All instruments are being individually play tested by Milan Rericha, the endorser of the RZ brand, confirming his personal distribution approval by its signature on the guarantee card. The RZ clarinets offer a limited 3-year warranty.
Includes a free 'Guarantee Checkover' from our Repair Workshop before the warranty expires.
