#beginquote# The Selmer is a good horn although I personally don't care for Selmer Clarinets.If you are having trouble in the high range (this is a mystery because I don't what you mean by high. Top line F? C above the staff? Above high C?)There may be reed issues (too soft or hard), embouchure issues, or adjustment issues with the horn itself that may be preventing you from playing high. Make sure the problem is not one of the above before you invest a lot of money in a new horn. The Selmer you have is a plastic clarinet. Do not buy another plastic horn. You gain no advantage. I would buy a wood horn if you are getting a new one. I like the Noblet 40 or 45 and the Normandy 4. Buffett makes good horns also. The E13 and R series are very good (but pricey). Yamaha makes good wood clarinets. Keep your Selmer for marching band (if you have marching band). Outside weather is not good for wood horns. While it won't ruin it, weather changes CAN adversly affect wood clarinets. When my students buy a wood clarinet they keep the student line plastic horn to use outside. Consult your band director for what he/she prefers. #endquote#
