Henri Selmer Paris Evolution Series Clarinets coming soon! 

Due to the features of the material and production process we use on the upper joints, the following advantages are achieved:

  • Greater stability in dimensional variation: the bore does not move or change and the reliability of the fit of the barrel onto the upper joint is improved
  • Waterproof: no more cracks
  • Better thermal conductivity: the instrument heats up and gets to pitch more quickly
  • Smoother response on all registers
  • Each evolution upper joint is indicated with a small star near the serial number

The Évolution will be available for the following models:

B16PresenceEV / A16PresenceEV

B16PR2 / A16PR2EV

B16SIGEV / A16SIGEV

B1610REV / A1610REV

*The Evolution series upper joint is reverse compatible on all standard models.
