I have not heard of problems with Vito, but definitely do NOT buy an
Artley! Unless you like throat tones about a semitone sharp. It is also
the only plastic clarinet that has a problem with cracking! (Not apocryphal
-- I have seen two of them myself, and our repair tech says he has repaired
others. The cracks develop near the thumb hole.)

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
