At Pereira 3D, my selection of new clarinets is hand-picked from large batches of each model. For example, my Buffet Crampon clarinets that are in stock were selected from the Buffet Crampon USA facility in Jacksonville, FL. From there, each instrument is initially set up to ensure all pads seal properly, pads are upgraded on some models to improve the instrument's resonance and response, the mechanism is properly adjusted, poor stock bumpers are replaced, pad heights are corrected, etc. This means you receive a superb-quality instrument in great working order from the very start.
Clarinets are hand-selected for their quality of wood, tone/resonance qualities, reliable intonation, and a great blow-through.
In addition, if a clarinet model you wish to purchase is not in stock, I can make a trip and select the best clarinet to fit your needs. If you're looking for additional options, climate-resistant instruments, or options for a lower budget, you may also look into the Pereira 3D Wood Bb Clarinets or Pereira 3D Wood A Clarinets, which are individually tuned, adjusted, and set up by hand.
