Suggested Make/Model of B-Flat Clarinets:

Professional level instruments are not required but are highly recommended as they are built with amazing quality and produce the best tone. A professional instrument will allow the student to grow past their beginner level and is an investment for a lifetime. Before purchasing any instrument please talk to a band director. Not everything shiny is a good investment.
