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..

bought this for my beginning granddaughter. I had to glue a couple of rings on the sections back on because they fell off right out of the box. The price is good to see if her interest remains. If it does I will purchase a higher quality instrument. This one is fine for now. I would not recommend it to an accomplished musician.

    Comments about Etude Student Clarinet Model ECL-100:

    Clarinet is not my main instrument, but I wanted one to play in a church orchestra that wouldn't cost a fortune. This clarinet is a nice, warm-sounding beginner's instrument. It does not come with cork grease, so that has to be purchased separately.

      Comments about Etude Student Clarinet Model ECL-100:

      I purchased this for my child who wanted to learn a wind instrument. Not being sure he will see it through I didn't want to spend a ton but still wanted it to be a quality experience. We have not been disappointed. After he borrowed some cork grease from his band teacher he put it together and was tooting out some nice notes in no time. (Make sure you purchase cork grease and extra reeds). I couldn't be happier. Musicians Friend has delivered another fine product!!

        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.

          Bought this for my grand daughter. Hoping she will continue her interest in music. So far she is enjoying it, I just hope she continues. I told her being a musician takes a lot of time and dedication.

                      Bought this clarinet for my son. He just started in 6th grade band. He loves it. It plays nicely, it looks nice, it's lightweight. It's also way cheaper than anywhere else.
