“I cannot emphasize enough the importance of the instruments for the development as a clarinetist and musician. For more than forty years my Wurlitzer clarinets, with their clean, warm and harmonious sound, have always and in all situations been reliable tools enabling flexibility and freedom in my performance.

I remember my friends Herbert Wurlitzer and his wife Ruth with great humility, and wish to thank the current Wurlitzer family and their team, who with the greatest professionalism maintain and develop the fine Wurlitzer tradition for the future.”
