Great Clarinet for a Beginner

This clarinet is easy to play and pretty to look at. The only thing that makes me sad it that it does not work with my Traditional Barrel that I used on my previous instruments.

Student Clarinet

My daughter tried this clarinet at our music store. Out of the three that she tried this clarinet is the one that she picked she loves it!

Sounds and plays like a pro

When I first played this horn, I was blown away by the consistency in tone and intonation (better than even some pro models I've played). When this clarinet is paired with a Vocalise and a Legere European Cut, it's nearly unstoppable. My first lesson I played on it, my teacher said it sounded like a wood clarinet, and that he would recommend it to his students over comparable student models. 6/5 for the cost.

Great for Outdoors

My daughter needed a good synthetic clarinet to play for outdoor performances. The alpha fits the bill perfectly.

Outstanding instrument!!!

I was truly amazed as to how well this instrument plays. First and foremost...the tone...you can't tell that this is made of a synthetic material versus wood. The intonation, the keywork, the altissimo....absolutely incredible. This instrument is a MUST for any player who has to be outside battling the elements. This blows the competition out of the water!!!
