The world of clarinets

Whether it is from high to low, historical to modern, or A flat to (contra-) bass – in our workshop in Bamberg you will find everything the world of clarinets has to offer.

There are few instruments which are as versatile as the clarinet. It covers a sheer multitude of genres and ensembles. Each player has various individual capabilities, skills and ideas concerning the sound and musical expression of his/her instrument. We, here at SCHWENK & SEGGELKE, aim to bring those together.

Therefore, we do not offer off-the-shelf solutions: Your instrument, handcrafted in our workshop, is going to be as unique as your musical conception.

We build your dream instrument in manual individual production. All our clarinets are crafted using a selection of carefully proven and stored wood. Whether you prefer German or French fingering, a lot or little mechanic, this or that bore – contact us, share your thoughts, try out different options. Our employees will gladly support you in creating your desired instrument.

At the heart of the UNESCO world heritage city Bamberg, and in collaboration with several globally active soloists, professors, folk musicians and amateur musicians… we create true woodworking masterworks.
