Origin of the company name

The corporate name "Clarion" comes from a long brass instrument that issued an extreme highrange sound and which first appeared in the 14th century; the one with a bending tube was called a "clarion", and the one with a straight tube was called a "tromba." The clarion was an S-shaped instrument similar to today's trumpet but had smaller bells and thicker tube walls. The mouthpiece was heavy, and it is thought that the clarion could provide a good balance of sound with other instruments.

The name was chosen to represent that Clarion has a close connection with music.
