Interesting - I wonder where they're made?

The only student level non-wooden German systems I've seen are Jupiter and all the Chinese ones.

If they are well built and reasonably priced, then that would at least make them more accessible to players who would otherwise not be able to afford even a decent wooden German student model (which are costly compared to the equivalent Boehm systems) or rent one which I was told is the norm in Germany for most clarinet students.

Why would that be the norm? I haven't met a single decent student (if we're talking about university students) that would need to rent their instrument(s), and they're usually borrowed from the music school's stock, if a beginner hasn't yet decided to buy an instrument. The youngest students will treat their German instruments miserably, so renting is out of the question, or to say the least, not very economically viable.

I'm not saying student German horns are trash, but it's shocking how even the Yamaha 450 beats them, which I've tried recently.
I cannot stress enough how many German student clarinets are totally sub-par. Let's hope the Leblanc turns out to be affordable rather than cheap.
