Nancy: At age 47, I am now 9 months into the study of the clarinet. It
is the devil's own instrument, but I am delighted with it..
Sounds like folks are already giving you excellent advice. I would only
add that while I admire and enjoy Benny, I find Artie Shaw to be the
clarinetist who makes my heart jump. Check out "Rare and Unreleased" or
"Complete Gramarcy 5 Sessions". Awesome!
I have an old Noblet "Stubbins" model, variously numbered 245 or 240.
Its ok, but I look forward to my next step up.
