The "clear plastic" mp you are referring to is probably not plastic but crystal. These are a bit more expensive and are very fragile. I recommend a hard rubber mp for durability and tone quality. Selmer makes some good ones as does LeBlanc (Larry Combs #3 or the K-10s). Yamaha has some of the best student line plastic mps on the market for around $20. Any of the above would be adequate for a beginner. Pro custom mps can cost as much as $250--not recommended ofor beginners unless $$ is of no problem to you. Good luck!!!.
