 Student Instrument for mature beginner
Author: Darrwall 
Date:   2018-08-13 00:41

I am a 78-year old who took up the clarinet a few years ago. I play at a fairly elementary level but am endeavouring to improve, I use a Boosey and Hawkes plastic Regent instrument which I bought in 1980 and stored away and which is in very good condition.

Would I be helping myself by purchasing a modern beginners instrument like for example the Backun Alpha or Yamaha 255s? Would progress be even quicker with a professional model like the Yamaha CSG or CSVR, or would that simply be a waste of money at my stage?
