Introducing the Nuvo Dood 2.0
Revolutionising the beginner woodwind market, Nuvo have created a fleet of instruments perfect for beginners in every way. Made from a combination of durable plastic and silicone, each instrument is ultra-lightweight and couldn't be easier to clean - simply rinse or bathe with soapy water, dry thoroughly and they're good to go!
The NUVO Dood is a brand new concept for single reed music education. A natural next step for a child playing the recorder, the Dood is a great way to introduce single-reed skills at an early age. With it’s mellow clarinet-like sound, the Dood makes a great addition to any recorder ensemble.
Everything on the Dood is designed to give the beginner an easier playing experience, benefitting both player and teachers alike. From the easy action ligature, to the durable silicone keys it the ideal instrument for inspiring young players in the classroom and at home.
Easy action ligature
Now comes fitted with new integral ligature, easy to open with one hand. It remains compatible with Nuvo’s plastic reeds in 1, 1.5 and 2 strength, the Legere Viib or cane Eb size clarinet reeds and now also soprano saxophone reeds.
Silicone key flaps
Silicone key covers help smaller hands to accurately and completely cover the tone holes - less squeaks, more music! The instrument follows recorder-like fingering patterns whilst allowing beginners to learn single reed mouthpiece techniques.
Easy to clean
Nuvo instruments are easy to clean and sanitise. For a quick clean, simply spray with an appropriate woodwind disinfectant, leave for a 20 seconds or more then wipe with a dry cloth. When your instrument needs a deeper clean you can bathe it in warm soapy water and leave to dry on a towel. This will remove a build up of dirt or grime in any part of the instrument and get rid of any unwanted bacteria without the need to take it apart or for expensive cleaning equipment.
Built to last
Made from durable plastic and silicone, Nuvo instruments are built to last. Nuvo actively encourages players to pass on their instrument to another beginner once they have moved on to their next instrument, so if looked after well, your instrument could last you through many new players! Maintenance is also simple, with readily available spare parts and simple instructions for fitting and repair.
Fun for all ages
The Nuvo Toot isn't limited to just the classroom. Although it is the perfect instrument as a stepping platform for an aspiring single reed player, or for a classroom of young musicians, it can be enjoyed by anyone. Whether you once played the clarinet and would like to rekindle your passion without breaking the bank or just want to start something new, the Dood is ready to inspire.
