Florian Popa Vortex Cut Bell Bb/A Clarinet
The Vortex Cut Bell for Bb/A Clarinet by Florian Popa is especially designed for clarinet. As it is the only acoustic instrument that projects its sound downwards, whereas other instruments project it to the front.
The special design of this bell includes a precision cut curve taken from a section of the bell. This allows the clarinets lower wall to push the sound towards the upper wall (where the cut out is) increasing the level of projection. Providing full balance of sound in all registers and a wide variety of articulations with power and constant sound flow during the performance.
Made from ebony that is over 100 years old and not treated with any chemical processing, the Vortex Cut bell is a single piece design. Incorporating magnetic points, allows for a significantly improved acoustic resonance, timbre and projection. Whilst also facilitating the attachment of the PowerSound.
This bell is designed to fit your clarinet according to its maker. Please choose the correct bell for your clarinet make.
