Reply To: Clarinet purchas advice
I majored in clarinet. The standard for clarinet majors has always been the Buffet R-13. If she plans to march, I would recommend keeping her first instrument (plastic probably) for outdoor playing. For concert music, go with a good wooden (grenadilla is the standard). Selmers at this price point are okay but for a bit more, I would recommend the Buffet B12 or E11 over the Yamahas.
