Sometimes a region produces wonderful products. France throughout the years has continued to create instruments of the highest level under a variety of names, with a multitude of builders, designers and performers. Out of the french tradition, Guy Humphrey produced wonderful clarinets that felt and played similarily to Humphrey's larger, more well known compatriots.
In terms of playability, thie Guy Humphrey clarinet feels very similar to Selmer of the same age and produces a warm, light tone that is suitable for a variety of musical environments. From picking up a clarinet that's going to making that overture sweetly speak or the raucous stylings of a Goodman-esqe big band chart, this GH clarinet is an ideal fit for the player who needs their instrument to work and work well.
