I'm considering to buy a Clarinet. As a beginner who already plays trumpet which brand/model should I pick ?

Here are a few examples of what I have been offered so far :

  • Yamaha
  • Jupiter
  • Taishan Winds TSCL-612
  • Broadway
  • Buffet B12
  • Signet
  • Armstrong

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions seeking recommendations for specific equipment are off-topic, because they are primarily opinion based. Instead, describe the required function and setting in which the equipment will be used, and ask what you should look for to achieve that." – Todd Wilcox, Richard, user45266, David Bowling, Tim
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Ask your teacher, then go to the music shop and ask them. Try out several models till you find the one that fits. Try several mouthpieces. A beginner can start out with a reconditioned used instrument. Do not buy a used instrument from Ebay. – RedSonja Mar 6 at 7:18

You should take a Jupiter. According to this website (normans.co.uk), the Jupiter JCL700Q-S clarinet is the best for beginners taking everything in and is the most popular among students. I suggest you take the Jupiter, as it is the one I started with, already having played the trumpet.
