About the EVOLUTION★ system from Selmer:

Henri SELMER Paris is proud to present EVOLUTION★, a new system available on all our professional B-flat and A clarinets. This innovation combines a new generation resin into the wood, allowing better stability and longevity of the instrument, all while preserving the acoustic qualities of a wooden clarinet.
The interior diameter of the upper joint is enlarged, only on the upper half, to combine the resin. The final boring is then done in a traditional way – by hand and with our same tools. The resin used is a new patented resin. It is from a biomass that does not contain bisphenol A (BPA). BPA has been substituted with molecules derived from biomass.

Scientific studies along with blind acoustic tests demonstrated that there is no notable difference in sound between traditional clarinets and EVOLUTION★ system clarinets.

The thermal conductivity characteristics of the resin are superior to those of ebony, and the acoustic trials done at the Orchestre National de l’Opéra de Paris confirmed it: clarinets equipped with the EVOLUTION★ system heat up more quickly and efficiently, so you can begin tuning faster.
