Bell d'amore

[Translate to en:]

Bach, Mendelssohn, Strauss, Ravel… They all loved the soft, veiled and slightly sonorous sound of the oboe d'amore. So why not enhance the clarinet with this sensual sound? 
D’amore clarinets were actually already built at the end of the 18th century, mainly in a lower pitch. Over time, they were replaced by the more popular basset horn. 
The bell d'amore is perfect for the low and slightly mystical sound of the A clarinet. 
However, it is also a fantastic addition to the Bb clarinet, allowing you to explore a completely new sound spectrum. 
As the name suggests, you may well find yourself falling in love with the bell d’amore – especially if you are into multiphonics
