Artist profile

Principal Bass Clarinet with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra


B♭/A clarinet Zenit


“The Uebel Zenit clarinets make a beautifully rich sound and have an incredible ease of response. The tone quality is extremely consistent across the entire range of the clarinet, and the intonation is superb. It is very easy to make a singing sound on these clarinets, that is very clear and projecting at the same time. The Zenits let you find your unique voice.”
