Student clarinets used to provide young players with low cost but usually also low performance. We instead look for student clarinets that offer younger players a great playing horn that they can truly grow with at a more affordable price. In this category, you will find clarinets that are “student” level but also clarinets that are great for student players (including some wood models).

Step-Up (also called Intermediate) clarinets give players the next logical “step up” from a student clarinet. Many feature more professional inspired designs and features but are assembled in a manner that provides cost effectiveness.
For most players, especially when paired with a great mouthpiece & plenty of practice, good step-up clarinets are more than they truly every need!

Sadly, most of the industry uses the term “Professional” as a marketing term rather than a true indicator of quality. They do this to part you with more of your money.

So we scour the world to provide only the best of the best and we categorize a “Professional” clarinet based on its performance and its build quality. These clarinets are guaranteed to be only the BEST clarinets available on the market today!
