1.0 out of 5 stars An economy too far for the clarinet teacher!, 12 Aug 2010
I bought this clarinet as a first instrument for my daughter, who has just started to learn at school. I must admit that I didn't do alot of research, as I just assumed that all clarinets are pretty much the same. This one was at the right price, and seemed ideal.

Having returned it, I was lucky enough to be offered a better secondhand one. The case was quite badly worn and marked, so I decided to replace it.

This case was chosen for its price, but after my experience with the clarinet I was a little more careful with my research, and made sure that it would be suitable for my needs! It is basic, but strongly made… Read more
