The Artley line of clarinets has many problems. I owned one for my first
5 years of playing clarinet. For the longest time, I thought the problems
were 100% me! Then I discovered that my intonation problems and
difficulties crossing the several breaks of the clarinet were only 50% me.
And I, too, have experienced the wonderful cracking of the plastic
clarinet. The Artley is good if you have nothing else. Besides, if one
can sound good on an Artley, imagine what he or she will sound like on a
Concerto or a Prestige?
