Model Mouthpiece

Which clarinet should I buy?

I am looking to buy a clarinet for my daughter - grade 3 standard. She has to date been using a very cheap plastic one. I would like to get her a better instrument but have a limited budget of around £350 - can anyone recommend a good make?

Before you go looking for a new clarinet, if the one she has still works well, you may consider buying a new mouthpiece. I've heard some of the weirdest sounding clarinets be VASTLY improved simply by changing the mouthpiece setup.

Find a couple of music stores that will let you try some mouthpieces in the store. Take your daughter with her instrument, a tuner, and a good reed to the store to try a few out. I strongly recommend Vandoren brand mouthpieces. They may be more expensive, but not as expensive as a whole new instrument would be.

Have her play the range of the instrument with a tuner and find a model that has the best overall tuning with her instrument. Once you figure out the best model mouthpiece (i.e. B40) you can try a few of the same one to try for a bit more tuning precision.

I had a really plain plastic clarinet when I started, but as soon as I switched to a Vandoren mouthpiece, everyone notices a huge difference immediately. Sorry if the conversion is off, but the ones I get all run under $100 (60 pounds?).

If you're set on getting her a new instrument, one of the favorites that I've heard is the Selmer Signet. The highest price I've come across just glancing through the internet was $550 (335 pounds?). I tend to like Selmer in general.

Best of luck. I hope you find something worth your money!
