The chalumeau is a predecessor of the clarinet. Its French name originated from the barock period. The technique of producing a sound using a simple reed was developed a few hundred years earlier.
The chalumeaux is played in the same way as the clarinet or saxophon but requires less air and lip pressure to produce its soft, low purring sound. It is appealing and easy to learn.
The instrument is tuned in the key of C ( Do) and can be played chromatically. The fingering is the same as for a soprano recorder.
