Garden variety C clarinet means the other C clarinets presently produced for the market today.
Compile a list and compare them to the Uebel C. Are they equal, better, or worse than the Uebel C. Do the others sound, tune, and respond as well or not? Is the $5,000 + price tag for the Uebel reasonable or not? One could start with Buffet (they make several different C models), Patricola, Amati, Stephen Fox, Rossi, and Ridenour, and go on from there.
Someone with a collection of old C clarinets might want to compare the Uebel to those--for example, the Selmer Center Tone C clarinet that was made decades ago, or the LeBlanc LL C clarinet.
Interestingly, not all the big name clarinet companies appear to produce a C instrument. For example, does Yamaha make a C clarinet?
