The descendant of the Medieval French Chalumeau, the first clarinet was built in Nürnberg in the early eighteenth century by Johann Christoph Danner. The clarinet is generally made of Grenadilla, an African blackwood. After evolving through the previous century, in the mid nineteenth century, Theolbald Boehm used his work with the flute to develop the key & ring mechanism which turned the clarinet into the instrument we recognise today.
