It's ok for a beginner. The Buffet B10 Student model is very good (under 400.00 online.)

Here is a page which has lots of models and reviews you can read. They generally have the best prices online too.

good luck

We used Artley when Conn made them. When UMI bought out Conn the quality really went down IMO. The Conn brand has been recently been bought out by Selmer. I understand the quality has gotten better.

There are several good clarinet brands. Yamaha, Noblet (pronounced no-blay), Normandy (made by Noblet), Buffett (pronounced buf-fay),Selmer, and Conn (Artley). Consult with your band director about the brand he/she prefers. If you are stepping up to high school look into a wood clarinet as opposed to synthetic.
