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:

This is an excellent clarinet for the price. I gave 4.0 for the features cause I dont know what the features on a clarinet can be. It,s a tough clarinet an the sound is average. If you need one to practice at home, this clarinet is really good for you!

            We needed a beginner's clarinet for my daughter who just got into her school's band program, but weren't willing to have her new adventure cost our family a small fortune. This student clarinet fit the bill perfectly and the price was too tempting to pass up. If she sticks with it for more than a couple of years she will need to up-grade, but for the time being it was exactly what we were searching for.

                Got it in my craw (as a middle aged adult) that I want to learn the clarinet. I'm glad I ordered this Student Clarinet Model ECL-100. It appears to be constructed solidly, has a warm, rich tone, and looks great. You certainly can't beat the price. Once my actual lessons begin, and I can stop scaring the cats, I'm expecting good things from this Clarinet (and myself). Very highly recommend!

                  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 child instrument was stolen last year at school. they school rectified the situation but it was not enough to cover the cost of clarinets i saw in stores. Another student mom recommended this site and i am so happy she did. shipping and ordering was fast and easy and my daughter loves it. the case looks nice as well.

                    thanks again

                                    I wanted to learn to play clarinet and sax, and my woodwind music teacher sounded so good on it and he liked it so much, I bought a second one ...hoping one of my grandsons will want to play. The music teacher found no flaws with it, and the sound, which is most important to me, was great.

                                        I play several instuments and I wanted to learn to play the clarinet. The ECL-100 is very satisfactory. It looks good and has a great sound. The workmanship is good and all in all it appears to be a wonderful instument.
