Evgeny Petrov

Artist profile

Clarinet professor at the Moscow Conservatory


B♭/A clarinet Zenit


“The Uebel Zenit combines the best features of the world's leading clarinet models.
It has a soft and voluminous timbre. At the same time, the sound is bright and flowing.
Even when playing on less hard reeds, I can tell that the fullness and volume in the timbre are maintained.
The second register is well tuned in intonation, and it is also easier to intonate in the high register – often without additional correction keys.
In general, even speaking of the entry-level models, the Uebel models stand out for their fullness and meet the highest professional demands.”
