 Re: Selecting a clarinet with Lisa Argiris

Hello!
I`m beginning clarinetist.
Once very much for a long time, more 20 years ago, I played clarinet at a small wind band.
Now I`m 42 – have a few free time and I try to remember how correctly to put fingers on clarinet apertures. LOL! :)
I didn't want to buy a plastic clarinet, I very much would like to buy the good instrument with a fine sound. Successfully to be engaged and willingly to waste time on music – I should fall in love with a sound of the tool. In search of such tool some months I looked through different sites on the Internet. Consulted to experts. Has come and on this site too. Here I have got acquainted with Sir Walter Grabner.
It has appeared, sir Walter very worthy person, the remarkable master. And he sells excellent instruments. And still makes handcrafted mouthpieces. I have informed him that I the beginner. But, in spite of the fact that I the beginner, instead of the professional musician - He have concerned me very benevolently and have recommended to choose any of his clarinets.
I have expressed interest to one of Buffet Festival from his collection. Then Walter Grabner has in detail described to me a sound of this instrument and its feature. I set many questions (because I have no a lot of experience in a choice of such difficult musical instrument and I can not define that is good and that isn't good).
Sir Walter patiently answered me my numerous questions, made different recommendations and as a result I have chosen Festival Buffet from his collection. It has arrived to me urgent mail for very short time. Packing fine, good service. This clarinet and both handcrafted mouthpieces – really above any praises.
My teacher of a clarinet – is a 1-st chair of a clarinet and the principal of clarinetists group in a Symphonic Orchestra of Shenzhen City (South China). This guy understands a clarinet very much.
And so he was lost in admiration from my clarinet and from mouthpieces which were made by Walter Grabner. A sound of this clarinet Festival – more excellent. Magnificent mouthpieces - anybody in China can't make that beautiful mouthpieces. It is more excellent work.
I have more gratitude to you, sir Walter, for your excellent work and for your fine relation to me.

Sorry, my English is very bad :)
