I believe Rossi clarinets have a German instrument as
an option, and it is about 25% more ($4000 US for
German, $3200-3400 US for French and English style.)
Not a lot more to pay for an instrument that you may
prefer or need. I unfortunately have not had a chance
to try a Wurlitzer or any other German style clarinet,
for that matter. I would love to try a German model
and see if I prefer it or not. Maybe at Clarfest in
New Orleans? I need to save money FAST! I will be
spending way too much money in New Orleans!

By the way...I prefer German oboes <GRIN>. Give me a
good old Gordet any day over a Loree (german model
only, of course).
