hi everyone, i started playing the clarinet last year, im pretty good cos ive put in alot of practice but up til now ive put more into the lusic and the practising than really knowing anything about clarinets... ive seen the leblanc vito clarinets and think they look pretty slick but im so lost,i had a look on twenga http://www.twenga.com/price-leblanc-vito-clarinet.html
but there are so many different results!
so long story short im stuffed!!
please can anyone offer me advice on the clarinet itself and then on pricing, as it seems to vary alot from what ive seen on the web. thanks guys

The Vito is an OK clarinet for a beginner. Other options are the Yamaha, Selmer, the more pricey but better LeBlancs like their Normandy model. Jupiter is making a good horn now. Your best bet is go to a music store in your area or talk to your band/orchestra director or private teacher. Making decisions without advice leads to mistakes. Avoid very cheap instruments. You get what you pay for. Cheap and BAD. Ebay is ok if you can trust the seller. Not everyone tells the truth.
Hope this helps
