We bought this for our 12 year old daughter for beginner's band.. She already has a Vito, but it was kind of in bad shape, so we bought this one to use and just took a chance on it, and that was a great idea.. She took it to school and let the band instructor look at it, and she said it was a great clarinet that would be fine for her to use till 10th grade.. The case is nice too.. We are very pleased with this clarinet, and would recommend anyone getting it..

    Middle age beginner. It's a lot of fun and tons of YouTube videos to get you started. I would recommend this clarinet if you are learning or practicing. Everything works the way it should.

      Comments about Etude Student Clarinet Model ECL-100:

      I bought this for my daughter a year ago, so she could participate in the early band program in grade school before joining band in middle school. We didn't know if it was something she wanted to continue with, so I wasn't going to spend big cash on a semi-pro instrument without her ever participating in band or playing a wind instrument before.

      I also read the warnings that the school issued saying 'do not buy inexpensive instruments from "big box" online music stores' and ignored them (and did exactly that). I'm fully aware that there are probably some import clarinets that are total garbage...but FWIW, this isn't one of them. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and sound. For almost exactly the cost of this instrument, I could have (as recommended by the school) rented a used instrument (rent plus insurance) from a local music store...instead, we OWN the clarinet, and are on the second year of use. In other words, if it broke now and was not repairable (unlikely) we could throw it in the garbage and buy another one, and still come out ahead. The irony of the school's warning, is that my daughters clarinet is actually nicer than the beat up rentals, and the envy of her classmates. If she sticks with it, we might replace it with a better quality instrument. For now it's serving our purposes fine.

      The only issue we ever had, was that one of the keys got slightly bent and had to be bent back to get it to work properly again. This wasn't a big issue for me (I played saxophone in school, used a school instrument that wasn't of the highest quality, and was well seasoned in the art of tweaking a horn back to shape so it plays again), but for the novice, might have caused problems. Don't expect pro quality, but if treated right, this is a great clarinet and will last a long time. I was surprised at how well built it was. I actually expected worse for the price. It's turned out to be a great value.

            My son is taking school band for the first time, he is a 4th grader. I was really pleased to purchase the Clarinet at this price but also it came with a case and the cleaning kit, I had no idea. It plays well and we have no complaints!

                My daughter took her new clarinet to high school band practice and within 3 days, two of the keys have broken to the point where the instrument is unplayable! We need it repaired or replaced and are going into the store this weekend to discuss. Fortunately it comes with a 1 year limited warranty. As the instrument was not mistreated, we expect to take advantage of this.
