Aidoni – Traditional Model

The Aidoni grenadilla barrel is the result of a long and meticulous process of experimentation. It has been co-created by Martin Fröst over a four-year period. Since 2016, Martin uses Aidoni grenadilla barrels on all his clarinets.
The barrel has an inner plastic tube with a reverse taper, and the tube is partially covered with a thin brass pipe. The result is a perfectly balanced barrel with exquisite intonation, and a resonant and focused sound. The use of a plastic inner tube allows a precisely measured bore, keeping its dimensions constant. The synthetic bore is not as much affected by the warm temperature in the air flow, which makes it easier to maintain the pitch than when playing on a traditional wooden barrel.
The Grenadilla wood produces a warm and solid sound, and the clear projection makes it suitable both for orchestra players and for soloists.
