A pair of Peter Eaton clarinets and mouthpieces

Welcome to Peter Eaton Clarinets

Leading soloist and composer Mark Simpson has now completed his transition from our International model to large bore Elites and so his Internationals are for sale. Please see the prices page for more details.

Stuart Clark is principal clarinet with Los Angeles Opera and a leading film studio musician. In 2021, he took his third pair of large bore Elites, along with a basset lower joint. We made two basset joints in 2021, the other going to Mark Simpson.

Although Peter Eaton clarinets are not currently in production, we will continue to support and service our instruments for the foreseeable future.

I have started to write about some of the eminent people I have known and who have influenced me as a clarinet maker. Some are household names, others less well-known. First up is Jack Brymer, now followed by Ted Planas.

During the last three years, most of Gervase de Peyer's and Roy Jowitt's clarinets, both B&H and Eaton, have been with us here in Effingham, and some of them still are. I have written assessments of them, together with some thoughts on the evaluation of individual instruments.
The New Articles link will take you to it.

I wrote an article about the history of the English clarinet and my involvement in it for the Spring 2019 edition of the magazine Clarinet & Saxophone (CASS). I was interviewed by Anna Hashimoto for a follow-up article in the Autumn 2019 edition of the magazine. Both articles can be accessed via the CASS articles link.

Please feel free to ask for further information. Details are on the contacts page.
