RMS Hand Selection Process

Our team of professional clarinetists look for truly exceptional sounding instruments with the following qualities:
  • A rich, resonant tone and a sweet core (a clarinet that ‘sings’)
  • Evenness of scale and resistance
  • A sound that exhibits a large spectrum of colors

“My experience with RMS has been the most seamless and enjoyable instrument purchase I have ever made. Their instruments were all beautifully set up, which made choosing an instrument far easier! I cannot recommend them enough!”
Kevin Schaffter Clarinetist & Music Director of MusAid
“I couldn't be happier with my new set of clarinets. Heather and Alcides are fantastic musicians, so they pick only the top inventory to sell. This makes the whole experience very easy and stress-free. If you are looking for a new instrument(s), they will not disappoint!”
Patrick Rehker Clarinetist, Rockford Symphony
“I purchased a gem Buffet R13 Prestige from RMS and couldn't be more happy with it. Alcides' key work is spectacular (and I'm picky) and the overall shopping experience was second to none. I can't recommend strongly enough that RMS needs to be your go-to for excellent professional instruments!”
Kenneth Long Clarinetist, Georgia State University
“Rodriguez Musical Services is a terrific selection service! I have tried clarinets in many different venues, but never before have I encountered such a variety of high quality Buffet models all in one place!”
Brad Whitfield Second clarinet, Alabama Symphony
“Thank you for such fine instruments! I am thoroughly enjoying breaking them in. They are marvelous!”
Diana Haskell Associate principal clarinet, St. Louis Symphony
“I've had my new R13 for several days now, and I’m thoroughly pleased with it! I don’t believe that I have ever played an instrument that has had this level of evenness throughout every register. Nor have I come across an instrument that has the same special resonance as this one!”
Eric Bromberg Clarinetist, Lexington, SC
“Heather and Alcides provided exactly the instrument selection process I was looking for. They understand the process from the point of view of the performer and can offer what many dealers I contacted could not. Heather is an excellent communicator and answered many questions I had along the way. I doubt you will find a better selection service and hospitality anywhere in the country. I am one happy customer!”
Justin Bulava Clarinetist, Portland, OR
“You aren't going to find a better clarinet shop... period. More than personalized service, more than the highest quality clarinet. If you are even semi-serious about playing clarinet, you simply need to make the journey.”
Kevin Childs Parent of clarinetist, Chicago, IL
