The Wilmington Clarinet got it’s name from our town, Wilmington North Carolina. “The 901” derives it’s name from our shop’s street address, 901 Martin Street.
The highly playable and most economical of The Wilmington Bb clarinet line features an ABS body finished with a brushed wood-grain look. The lightweight ABS resin body is quite durable and ideal for beginners, students, and marching band because it’s easy to clean, low maintenance, and resists cracking. The body of the clarinet is machined on a 4 axis CNC machine for a highly consistent result. The Boehm French style keywork is constructed from solid rigid German nickel-silver with durable nickel plated finish.

Every Wilmington clarinet is play tested, adjusted, and set-up at our shop in Wilmington, NC by a professional woodwind technician. The final step is putting our personal stamp of approval- the engraving of The Wilmington logo- on the bell and body.
All Wilmington clarinets come with two barrels. These can also be used to dial in the intonation in very warm and very cold weather. The lightweight nylon case comes with shoulder straps for easy transport. Other accessories include a mouthpiece and ligature, Ultimax key oil, Ultimax cork grease, cleaning cloth, and cleaning swab.
