Launched in 2022, the Muse sits at the top of Selmer’s range
Muse clarinets have been designed for musicians seeking instruments that offer a precise and direct response. They offer great ease of playing, an immediate vibration, and a colourful and warm tone.
The Muse provides great homogeneity throughout the registers, allowing the player to seamlessly move between larger intervals while maintaining accurate intonation.
The EVOLUTION system has been integrated into the Muse clarinet which involves applying a new generation resin to coat the interior of the upper joint. This innovation helps to stabilise the wood and provide better longevity to the instrument, all while preserving the acoustic qualities of the traditional wooden clarinet.
The Muse’s keywork was designed with ergonomic comfort in mind that is similar to the Privilège and Présence, allowing for quick adaptation to the instrument.
Muse clarinets have two back chrome-plated metal rings, as well as two silver plated rings with a new design.
The bottom joint features a laser engraving of a feather symbolising lightness and creative freedom, inspired by the values of generosity, listening and transmission of the musical practice.
