I've just watched a video on a Clarineo which is an Eb plastic clarinet type instrument, i assume aimed at kids.  Has anyone tried one?  What's the sound like?  Would this be a good pre-clarinet instrument for young people?

I've not seen that, but my flute teacher had a Clarineau from Kunath that she used to use with some of her younger transitioning pupils. It's looks like and fingered like a recorder with a clarinet type mouthpiece. I had a go and really enjoyed it!

Here's a guy fiddling around with it rather expertly having discovered it at an exhibition;.

I thought the clarineo was a C instrument.

I'm pretty sure it is (from what i googled). I've never played one myself and got most of my info about it from the website when i googled it.

 

I can't remember what it sounded like, but my former clarinet teacher's little boy (who's 5) has one. I've also seen it in my local music shop  

 

http://www.clarineo.co.uk/ - This website has all you need to know about the clarineo.

 

 

Edit- that website says it's a C instrument but using Eb reeds

You think correctly.
I'm afraid I dislike Clarineos with a passion. I find them really quite unreliable. Better in my opinion to wait until you're 7 or 8 and start on a standard Bb.

Silly me, of course they're C but use Eb reeds!  I was having a senior moment when i typed that i think.

 

Thanks for the advice so far.
