Bought this for my son because he got beginning band this year in school and the teacher picked him for Clarinet. After looking up top Clarinets, the Jean Paul came up on every list we came across and we couldn't be happier! The Jean Paul has great sound and is very good quality for the price. After a couple weeks there have been zero problems and I woukd highly recommend to anyone! A+++
My daughter loves to take it with her to music class.
Great beginner clarinet....wonderful sound
In general, the clarinet works well and has a nice tone (at least to a returning beginner like me). However, one issue is that the ligature keeps slipping down on the mouthpiece as I tighten the screws. It finally holds if I tighten the screws all the way and push it on over the reed. I notice that another reviewer said he/she replaced the mouthpiece and ligature.
This has been a great clarinet for my son! It’s easy for him to play, and it produces a nice sound. Great value!
