The Selmer USA Omega clarinets can be segregated into two groups... current production as of the moment which seems to be a cheapened version of the Selmer Signet series (or at least this is what I'm told) and a 1980's production which featured elaborate engraving on the bell, heavily silver-plated keywork and impressive attention to detail and construction.

I think the 1980's version was an excellent clarinet, but was discontinued after several years which is too bad because these horns were very good players. I've owned a number of them and have avoided it since only because I was doing some flipping of instruments at the time and found this to be an under-appreciated clarinet. Excellent bargain for the player or student who wants an excellent horn but only has funds for an entry level instrument. But not worth investing in because it's too hard to get your money back.

I've attached a photo of this version for your reference.
