 Worth it?
Author: KatieAschoff

I am primarily a saxophone player, but have also taken clarinet lessons and think it would be good for me to get a clarinet, even if it is not a professional one (since I cannot afford it and am still fairly new to it). There are some for sale in my area, including a Yamaha student clarinet for $80 and a Boosey & Hawkes clarinet for $100. I know the B&H clarinet is wooden, and am assuming the Yamaha is plastic. The Yamaha looks newer, but the B&H one is described as having no cracks and is only missing one small pad on the "a" key.

Does anyone have any recommendations on which would be better to pursue? I would hopefully be able to play/test them before buying but am unsure. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
