They have one wooden model, the #400, one with plastic top joint and
wooden lower joint and bell (can't remember the number) and three which
are all plastic (models 300, 330 & 333). My favorite is the model 300,
but the model 330 is fine for most applications. The only difference is
that it lacks the "split-ring E key," which most students use very rarely
if at all.
