Having a good instrument is an important part of being a clarinet player. Good instruments help improve your tone and make register jumps easier. A beginner should start with a plastic or resin instrument, and more advanced players should upgrade to a wood instrument.
Brands[edit | edit source]
There are many well known clarinet brands to choose from. For student instruments, Jupiter, Backun, Yamaha or Selmer instruments are very good starting points. Buffet is well known for creating high-quality professional instruments, but Buffets are far more expensive in general.
