Rossi Academy Clarinets – Now on clearance/discontinued
The Rossi Academy Clarinet is an amazing instrument for the price of $1850, and in our opinion is better than any non-professional Buffet Clarinet. While it’s technically an intermediate instrument, it plays on a level unlike any other in this price range (or even $1000 more!). The Academy is perfect for someone who is looking to upgrade their student clarinet to something that’s not only better quality, but easier and more fun to play!
Rossi Clarinets In Stock
When choosing a clarinet, we look for the following characteristics:
- Superior Tone – With evenness throughout the range
- Excellent Resonance and Vibrance – we listen for that extra sparkle that few clarinets possess
- Even Tuning
- Wood That is Free of Defects – No knots, chips, or wavy grain
Professional Clarinet Setup
With our setup, your clarinet will be its very best from the start!
Clarinets from any factory (even the very best L. Rossi Clarinets) are not perfect in terms of keywork, pads, spring tension, etc. What sets us apart is that every single clarinet receives a full professional-quality setup to make the mechanical feel and function as good as the sound. We spend a great deal of time addressing every issue that can keep your clarinet from playing its absolute best.
Every clarinet is checked to make sure the following things are perfect:
- Pressure/Suction – No leaking pads
- Key Movement – No binding or drag
- Spring Tension – Proper tension and balance
- Ring Heights – Checked for proper evenness and height
- Pad Height Opening – Checked for proper venting (no stuffiness)
- Key Spatula Locations – Key positions checked for ergonomics
We are clarinetists with many years of performing and clarinet repair experience, so we know exactly how a great instrument should play and feel. This results in a better adjusted, easier to play, and ultimately a better sounding clarinet.
The trial policy for any instrument is seven days upon delivery. You can try as many instruments as you would like, and any instrument shipped must be paid for. After choosing your favorite, simply return the other instrument(s), and your card will be refunded (minus a 3% restocking fee).
