It has been a while since I have researched clarinets. I am in the process of making recommendations for my beginner clarinets at our local music store. Any insight and suggestions on the following brands for their student models would be helpful.

-Yamaha
-Selmer
-Armstrong
-Jupiter

I am concerned with the influx of Asian instruments in the beginner market. For argument sake, I know most of you will not recommend any student line models, but having to choose from the list above, what would be my best options. Moving up to the "intermediate" level instrument sometimes brings about another manufacturing sight - so if you can ALSO recommend a better instrument in the brands above, that would be appreciated as well. But I really need to stay in the beginner lines above to give parents an option to rent, but can then recommend the "step-up" when time comes to purchase an instrument. Any thoughts and suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you.
