The Vito Clarinet
A Vito clarinet is often a good choice for the student clarinet player. Vito makes a wide range of clarinets, including some of the clarinet family that other clarinet makers overlook. Part of the Leblanc manufacturing consortium, Vito are still the favorite of school bands the world over.
Unlike many other budget instruments, clarinets made by Vito are made in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA. The Vito name has been part of the Leblanc Company since the 1950s, when an explosion in the demand for clarinets in the US meant the French instrument makers could not meet demand, and plastic bodied clarinets started to be manufactured at the Kenosha plant (the plant has been expanded four times in the past 50 years).
Rather than injection molding the instrument, the Vito is made by taking a rough cut ‘blank’ made from a plastic called Resotone which is then precision bored to create the clarinet.
As well as the standard student B flat clarinet, Vito makes a range of other types of clarinet. Unlike many manufactures of rarer clarinets such as Alto and Contra Alto clarinets, Vito makes these specialty instruments in plastic rather than wood. This makes the Vito instruments a popular choice for schools, as these clarinets can often be beyond the budget of many groups and schools.
