Product Description

Looking to move up to a wood clarinet? The Selmer CL211 is the clarinet for you. It features a smaller bore, undercut tone holes and silver plated keys.

Always committed to serving the needs of students, music educators, amateurs, and professionals,

Selmer has grown steadily over the years, becoming the industry leader recognized for craftsmanship and quality.

Our story is both unique and fascinating. The Selmer family traces its roots back to the 18th century rural Lorraine region of France with Johannes Jacobus Zelmer.

Enlisting in the French army provided a means of moving families from the country to the city.

For three generations Zelmer men served in the same regiment, while the boys, too young to be soldiers, played in the band. Jean-Jacques Selmer (son of Johannes Jacobus), in addition to changing the spelling of the family name, ascended to the rank of drum major. The military afforded great opportunities for education and travel.

When Charles-Frederic Selmer (son of Jean-Jacques) died in 1878 he left sixteen children, five surviving to adulthood. Of these, Henri and Alexandre graduated from the Paris conservatory as accomplished clarinetists. Henri went on to perform in the famed Garde Republicaine band and the Opera Comique.

By the early 1900s Henri had opened shop at Place Dancourt in Paris to meet the demand for his handmade reeds and mouthpieces. Soon repair work and customizing led to the manufacturing of clarinets.

From 1895 to 1910, Alexandre Selmer served as principal clarinetist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. At the turn of the century, a small retail store was opened in New York City for selling the family wares. Selmer clarinets prospered after winning a gold medal at the Saint Louis exposition of the 1904 Worlds Fair.

In 1918 Alexandre returned to Paris to assist Henri in their growing family business, leaving an employee, George Bundy, the rights to distribute Selmer products in the United States.

Fantastic step-up instrument.

Made of grenadilla wood, the Selmer CL211 Intermediate Bb Clarinet features a smaller bore, undercut tone holes, adjustable thumb rest, and silver-plated keys. The internal bore design of the Selmer CL211 compares to many professional handmade clarinets. The use of carefully located tapers (conical) and straight (cylindrical) sections creates a smooth, consistent scale.

The Selmer CL211 clarinet enables musicians of all ages and abilities to produce a refined, resonant tone quality. The shape of the Selmer CL Series clarinet bore results in an instrument in tune with itself. Play a low G, add the register key to produce the D a twelfth above and check the pitch of both notes; they should register as in tune. Do the same with low A and middle E, low Bb and middle F, low Bn and middle F#. Critical undercutting of the tone holes refines this tuning process and enhances a full, even sound over the entire range.

The Selmer CL Series makes playing the clarinet effortless. Key placement and size becomes very critical for young musicians. Small fingers can easily cover the profile and size of the ring keys. Ergonomic positioning of the left-hand little finger keys and throat A facilitates advanced technique. An adjustable right-hand thumb rest on the CL211 allows for a personalized feel. Use of professional-style tapered pivot screws on all Selmer clarinets lends a light, positive action.

History
Welcome to Conn-Selmer, the leading manufacturer and distributor of musical instruments and accessories.
The current company includes a portfolio of individual companies or brands that represent innovation,
entrepreneurship, and a focus on musical excellence. The Selmer Company,
which was comprised of brands such as Vincent Bach, Selmer, Emerson, Ludwig, Musser, and
Glaesel was a leader in American craftsmanship with operations based out of Elkhart, Indiana.

In 1995, Selmer took ownership in the Steinway Piano Company to create base of legendary brands
focused on the highest quality and reputation for musical performance and artistry.
In 1998, the Selmer Company and Steinway Musical became a publicly traded company
on the New York Stock Exchange

In 2002, the Selmer Company merged with United Musical Instruments
to form Conn-Selmer. Like the Selmer Company, United Musical Instruments
was built from brand legacies such as C.G. Conn, King, Benge, Armstrong, Artley,
and Scherl andamp; Roth. In 2005, the Conn-Selmer Company acquired the G.Leblanc Corporation.
This brought another family of brand names such as Leblanc, Vito, Holton, Martin, and Yanagisawa
into the largest US full-line manufacturer of band and orchestra instruments. In 2013,
Conn-Selmer and Steinway changed from public companies to private ones when Paulson andamp; Co became the new owner.

As the industry has evolved, Conn-Selmer has been focused on two fundamental bases
for each of these brands. The focus on US manufacturing and the highest quality standards
associated with this position can be seen in instruments produced in Elkhart, Indiana,
Cleveland, Ohio, Eastlake, Ohio, Monroe North Carolina, and LaGrange, Illinois.
An unwavering support for music education and advocacy for the arts can be seen
through leadership by Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser and the Conn-Selmer Division of Education.
