As Selim Sesler, most of the professionals in Turkey use Amati ACL 340S. Serkan Cagri also uses Amati but he plays on a model named "Modell Serkan Cagri", a modified ACL 340 by the Amati. I haven't heard anything bad about Amati. In contrary, when comparing Orsi and La Ripamonti, every master says Amati has better tone, bigger sound and correct intonation. I saw a lot of Amati, and I think it has the proven quality. The only thing that you must care is quality of wood. As every grenadilla-made clarinet, Amati also has the problem of cracking. But if you select a solid one(which has no visible crack) and if you care about cleaning, I don't think you'll have any problem.

If you want a G made in Turkey, there's a new brand named "Girnata" ( I've heard good thing but Some masters are suspicious about it's intonation. And also price is very high. Only one or two professional clarinetist use it here, Turkey.

Amati is the best, For me...
