 I've just become the proud parent....

... of a loverly brand new Buffet B12 Bb clarinet. I went today and had a play of both a new and second hand B12. Both were very nice to play, but the matt woodlike look of the new one won me over.

It was so nice to play a proper clarinet! The feel of it, and weight was just right for me, sounds nice with my pomerico sapphy mp too. The very nice chaps at the woodwind shop also took off the adjustable thumb rest, and swapped it over with the moulded plastic of the 2nd hand one. I found that *so* much more comfortable.

Cost for new was around $400 i think. £222, as they price matched a web price.

Now I guess I have to really learn to play it! I'm just itching to get it out, but its just a tad too late, not for me, but the neighbours!

Thank you for all the recommendations, they were greatfully recieved!
