 Clarinets of questionable quality
Author: GBK 2017

After recently speaking to one of my techs, he gave me a few additional "brands" of clarinets which, if possible, should be avoided for the obvious reasons: poor intonation, less than quality workmanship, cheap material and keys, ability for replacement parts, cost of repair vs cost of clarinet, etc...
