 RE: What kind of clarinet should I buy?

if you want a professional clarinet- that is, if you really think you're going to persue clarinet as a profession, i think a buffet is best (what is most played) leblanc makes a good like of clarinets as well. but you're talking near 2000, average depending on where you buy. look at the classifieds here and see what is used. sometiems you can get a good used clarinet for a good price. sometimes people are selling then not because they are bad instruments, but just because they don't need them anymore. you might check your local music store if they deal in clarinets and see what they have. i'd have a teacher try one out with you before you actually purchase one, and try more than one out if you are able. i wouldn't buy a yamaha, as i've found the sound to be rather stuffy and i didn't like the selmer line, but many people like and play selmer clarinets. it's really up to you as what you buy. you may want to just look into an intermediate model- which is cheaper probably but will suit your needs just as well. buffet, leblanc and selmer i'm sure all make an intermediate model clarinet that is good. i'm sure you'll get lots of advice on this. good luck. also, there is the ebay auction site, but you have to place bids and keep bidding when you're outbid.... also, you never know what you're going to get, even if you look at a picture. i'd try to buy something you are seeing in person first.
