 Re: Start clarinet on a pro instrument?

I'd personally start on a new "student" instrument. It can take a while to learn how to hold/manipulate/assemble/maintain/care for the instrument without putting undue pressure on the keys/posts/knocking it off the chair/etc...general care/maintenance stuff.

Equipment can hold a person back (whether in sports or in music), but it takes a little while to achieve that point.

When the time comes for you to move up to a new professional clarinet, you might like it to be new and in top shape - lacking any of the damage/use/wear it might have otherwise experienced while you were at the beginning stages.
