What is wrong with the one that you have that has caused you to lose
interest? Why do you think a newer one would fix that?

The Woodwind and Brasswind ( ) now carry some Oehler (i.e.
German system clarinets) but only pro level models. In general, they are
hard to find in the US as this system was not adopted here. The Boehm
system succeeded in pushing out the Albert system by the late 1920s / early
1930s. The Oehler system is the direct descendent of the Albert system but
was only pursued in Germany, Austria, and some parts of Eastern Europe. The
Albert system per se hasn't been made for decades.

Since Oehler system is not common here in the US, the price is not likely to
be "reasonable."
