 Re: Doubling clarinet with tenor sax?

Alicia, I agree with Alexi's comments.

A few other things:
*Most jazz arrangements put the clarinet on an alto part, not tenor.
*Don't plan on using such a hard reed on a sax. If anything (for a similar mouthpiece), you should be using a softer reed on sax.
*At least in the USA, $400 will not allow you to buy a decent sax, even used. I'm not familiar with the Karl Glaser sax. Altos cost less than tenors.
*I suggest you borrow the alto sax long term if you can. Then buy a good mouthpiece. After you graduate, if you still want a tenor, you should be able to afford paying more.
