 Louis & Co 'Chas Draper' vs Yamaha 650
Author: Superzavoo

I'm an intermediate/advanced player looking for an upgrade from my Yamaha 450, to use in university/college bands. I recently tried a friend's 650 and it was a great improvement, so have been looking around for one. I've found one advertised on a local store's website - along with a Louis & Co 'Chas Draper approved' clarinet, which looks intriguing.

I've Googled Louis & Co clarinets but have found very few for sale, so I'm not really sure what the price should be. The one I've found is £930 (about $1200) - does this seem reasonable?
Also, I can't seem to find out which 'mainstream' clarinets they compare to - are they roughly Yamaha 650-standard? The prices for them at my store are virtually the same.

(Apologies for the lack of detail on the clarinets - the website doesn't give any extra info, but I'll probably go there next week to try them. And also sorry for my lack of clarinet knowledge - I've probably said some dumb things.)
