Subj: [kl] CHoosing a new instrument

Since the subject of good and bad clarinets has come up, it seems
that a discussion of how to pick a new clarinet may be in order. My
buffet R-13 is about five years old, and I have been told by my teacher
that it is not a good one. The reasons are pitch related, but I seem to
be able play in tune as well as anyone ( in this area, anyway!) The
tone of the instrument I think is quite beautiful and its response is
quite good. I also own a Selmer10G and think that it is also a fairly
good horn, with a good tone, but I changed because I could not get a big
enough sound on it.
Would anyone care to share criteria that you use when choosing a
new instrument, either for yourself or a student. I think that it would
be helpful to those of us who are less experienced.

Thanks, Deborah
