The Selmer Presence is part of a new range from Selmer under the Seles range. Designed for the most popular price points the new Seles range re-invigorates the Selmer offerings to these busy areas of the marketplace.
The new Presence clarinet is Selmers first truly fresh clarinet design for quite some years. There has been a great deal of research and design behind each and every manufacturing process and decision. Positioning and sizing of tone holes, the shape of the internal bore and the layout of the keywork has all been analyzed, adapted and modified to represent a new chapter in the Selmer clarinet story.
The Presence offers a balanced, even and wonderfully rich tone across it's whole range. The lower register in particular is extremely warm and broad in sound and the tuning across the instrument is superb.
Entering a busy area of the market the Presence will be judged against the popular Buffet R13 and RC and alongside the increasingly succesful Yamaha custom series. Teachers and players alike are now spoilt for choice at this price point, only time will tell which models come out on top...it's great to see Selmer now also have a serious contender in the mix.

This clarinet has excellent intonation in all registers particularly when played with a Selmer Focus or Concept mouthpiece, a Vandoren Traditional or V12 reed and Rovner ligature. Excellent note production in all registers as there is little resistance to sounding when blown either soft or hard. Too good for my amateur abilities where the Seles Prologue proves to be somewhat better value for money.
