Going to the Patricola web site is a good source of information. I own a
Bb Patricola and absolutely love it! It is wonderful. It has a little
more resistance than my old Leblanc, but the tone is really secure. I am
so happy with my purchase, and both my band director and private lesson
teacher upon hearing me play it for them in a blind test liked the
Patricola over the Concerto and R13s I had. It was also my first choice,
so the decision (for me, personally, not to be pushed onto anyone for any
reason) was simple. Just try one and you probably will like it.
I have tried the Eb clarinets by the family, and that will be my
graduation present. I was even more impressed with the quality of the
Eb. It is just wonderful! I have it in my possession right now and
hopefully it will be mine outright very soon.
