I also play a Selmer Signet with no problem. I sit first in my section at a
major music school...what's the prob? My opinion is that clarinets are like
cars...you find some good ones, but there's an aweful lot of lemons out
there, regardless of the brand!

I have been playing on a Selmer Signet Special for about twenty
years with no problems! Does anyone know how this model is reputed to fare
in the grand scheme of things?
