Comments about Allora AABC-304 Bass Clarinet:

I got this slightly used, so it may have effected its state of repair. Before talking about the glowing positives, I will mention the few negatives.

The finish on the keys has almost completely worn away after 3 months. The automatic octave mechanism sticks, no matter how often I clean the pad. Hopefully a pad replacement will make this problem go away. The low notes (below Eb) needed adjustment to be able to play them without holding down extra keys to close the pads. The mouthpiece is also sub-par.

Now for the positives. With a new mouthpiece (the Clark Fobes Debut), the tone is resonant and warm. Honestly, I'm blown away by the tone and response once it has been properly adjusted. Hard rubber really makes a difference compared to plastic. And the range to low C is fantastic. I can easily cover 4 octaves, and the 5th octave is within reach. The case is also fairly durable. It's been knocked around a bit and there is hardly any wear.

I would recommend this to anyone, as long as you're willing to spend a little time and money bringing the instrument up to snuff. As I said at the top, this may have been the result of it being used, but I had to file down a couple posts that were too long and bend some keys. I plan on buying other instruments from this brand, knowing there may be a little work involved to make it shine.

      Comments about Allora AABC-304 Bass Clarinet:

      I'm a beginner to the bass clarinet but I've played tenor sax for 9 yrs. This bass clarinet was easy to switch to because it's easy to play and learn on. This clarinet is a 'teacher' clarinet. It's helping me learn.
