Surprisingly good for it's prize

17.11.2015
Bought this clarinet to try out something extraordinary. I wasn't too sure I'd keep it longer than a week before sending it back, but here it still sits.

The CL-17BB CG is a surprisingly good clarinet for it's prize. It definitely beats any ABS clarinet I've tried, even the (more than doubly) expensive Yamaha and Buffet ABS clarinets. Of course it isn't wooden, but for a student clarinet this is something I can really recommend.

The tone of the clarinet is not a plastic-y fuzz but softer, closer to full-wooden instrument. I'd say the tone is perfect for jazz/pop-arrangements.

The mouthpiece is... well it's better if you just buy a mouthpiece while you are here. But that is the case with many clarinets anyhow.

The instrument is good allrounder for anyone wanting an affordable band-instrument or if the soft wooden tone isn't the most important thing.

Thomann cl-17 BB composite

Patrick961, 14.04.2018
I am already a big fan of the startone and thomann products that I use during my work, holiday and office trips during free hours while limiting the financial risk in the event of loss, theft or degradation. These products give me satisfaction overall and have also allowed me to learn to play new instruments at a lower cost. Before buying this clarinet I already had the equivalent startone clarinet which I am very happy with; I wanted to know if this clarinet thomann bring me something more given the composite material (wood + plastic)!
My conclusion is that the gain from the price difference is a bit below what I could expect:

Mechanics: We find the same mechanics as startone which is excellent but with a plus: a 12th key curved on the right a bit like the octave key of the saxophone. Here I say congratulations to thomann because 20 years ago I'm waiting for this innovation! With this key more problem of quack "quack" related to the touch of the twelfth key!
Appearance of the instrument: A small disappointment following a standard exchange made by thomann because of a flag with unfixed cup ring and barrels not tight enough on the instrument, I received a replacement instrument with a little difference in color between the upper body and the lower body, really not top!
Sound: and expressiveness: this is where the rub as the material was supposed to improve the sound! In fact the clarinet is much more reactive but has a brilliant sound and brilliant to excess!
We must really moderate the air column to find the dark sound that makes the charm of the clarinet! I tried several mouths but nothing helps! It is also difficult to qualify the sound produced by the clarinet because of its great responsiveness! An appreciation to review after a few months of use because I think we must also adapt to the instrument!
.
That said to have the experience with major brands even professional clarinets in composite do not have the expressive qualities of equivalent models in solid wood!

For the rest nothing to say clarinet startone and thomann are equipped with an extremely precise and well centered mechanics and are very easy to issue. I'm expecting a thomann clarinet solid wood taken reasonable because I'm a little on my hunger with this clarinet composite!
