The clarinet is a type of woodwind instrument that has a single-reed mouthpiece, a straight cylindrical tube with an approximately cylindrical bore, and a flaring bell.During the late 1600s, before the clarinet existed, the chalumeau, considered the first true reed instrument, was used by musicians. Johann Christoph Denner and his son Jacob improved the chalumeau by inventing the speaker key. This gave the instrument a greater register and because of this, Johann Christoph Denner is recognized as the inventor of the clarinet, a predecessor of the chalumeau.Unlike other woodwind instruments, the clarinet has a cylindrical bore giving it its distinct sound.
