Find a Dealer


Rich, robust and extremely well balanced top to bottom, Selmer presents Privilege. 

The Selmer Paris Privilège clarinets are exceptionally consistent in tuning, blending easily with other instruments in all acoustic settings including symphony, opera, large ensemble, chamber and in the studio. The perfectly balanced throat tone area (E, F, F#, G) really shines, making the Selmer Privilège extremely consistent over the entire range of the instrument. Additionally, most notes do not require corrective fingerings to be tuned, and extra correction keys are not necessary for notes in the low register (E and F).

The Privilege by Selmer clarinets are one of the most unique playing clarinets on the market, using a slightly larger bore while still maintaining a very rich and full tone. This mixture gives the clarinetist the best of both worlds.
