If you're looking to learn or get back into playing the clarinet, a clarinet is an affordable instrument that can be challenging, but rewarding. Clarinets typically come in three sizes: Bb, C, and D, although smaller clarinets, such as Alto and Bass clarinets, are also popular. Clarinets come in different keys, including a Bb clarinet, a C clarinet, and a D clarinet. Clarinets also come in a variety of materials, including wood, plastic, and metal.

In the MOOZ Themes Reviews Lab, we test clarinets for durability, playability, ease of repair, and sound quality. We evaluate each clarinet for playability, including playability, intonation, and volume. We also consider ease of repair, including ease of cleaning, ease of repair, and price. Our experts also test clarinets for durability, including durability, reliability, and sound quality.

Our top pick is the alto clarinet. The alto clarinet is a smaller version of the full-sized clarinet and is popular with beginning clarinetists. Our top overall pick is the Yamaha clarinet, which comes in different sizes, including Bb, C, and D, and a variety of keys.

EASTROCK Clarinet Bb Flat 17 Nickel Keys Beginner Student Clarinet with 2 Barrels Hard Clarinet Case and Clarinet Cleaning Kit

EASTROCK Clarinet Bb Flat 17 Nickel Keys Beginner Student Clarinet 2 with Barrels Hard Clarinet Case and Clarinet Cleaning Kit

by EASTROCK

DESIGNAppearance:Elegant body with 6-ring nickel-plated keys, beautiful ring-wrapped bell mouth, good-looking and durable.The cylindrical borealso produces strong projection and a wide range of tones. The double connections: 57MM and 62MMs mouthpieces connector are very useful for adjusting clarinets tuning no matter what kind of environment you are in.

This is a well-made clarinet for the price. The clarinet has a nice, warm, focused tone, and it's a consistent performer, staying in tune with relatively few adjustments. The nickel-plated keys feel nice and responsive, and the adjustment levers are easy to operate. The clarinet comes with two barrels, so beginners have a choice of sound. It also comes with a cleaning kit and a cap, which aren't usually included with a starter clarinet. The cap works well and protects the clarinet from damage. If you're new to clarinet, you'll likely need this tool to help you tighten and loosen the key screws; without it, you'll have to keep taking the instrument apart. The clarinet comes with a hard case, but it's a little too small for a full-size clarinet, so you'll need a larger case if you plan to travel with the clarinet. The clarinet itself uses six AA batteries, which are easy to install and last a long time. The case is included, so you'll pay a little extra for a hard case.

BTER Bb Clarinet, Professional 17 Keys Beginner Student Clarinet with Reed, Screwdriver, Carry Case & Clarinet Repair Tools Portable Removable Bb Tone Clarinet Set for Beginner, Student(Black)

BTER Bb Clarinet

by BTER

PORTABLE DESIGNThis student clarinet adopts removable design and with compact size after disassembly, which is easy to store, not occupying space. Suitable for beginners,perfect instrument for the student / beginner musicians.

The BTER Bb Clarinet is a great clarinet for beginners or students, and it's especially good for beginners because it has a low key action. The clarinet is made of plastic, so it's light, but it's built well and feels sturdy. The clarinet has a bright, clear sound and is loud enough to sound good in a small hall or classroom. It has a nice, even tone, and it's slightly more muted than some beginner clarinets. The clarinet doesn't produce a lot of low notes, though, so you'll need to rely on other clarinets for those. The clarinet's key action is good, and the keys have distinct click sounds when pressed. The clarinet comes with a cloth, a reed, a screwdriver, and a case. The clarinet is easy to set up, and it's relatively easy to tune. The clarinet can also easily be packed up, and it's portable enough to carry in a tote bag. The BTER Bb Clarinet isn't perfect. The clarinet's sound would sound better if it had more low notes. The clarinet also doesn't have a key for marking which note you're on, so you'll either have to read notes by ear or rely on other clarinets to find the right note. The clarinet's tone will sound better with a better reed. The clarinet also doesn't come with a cap, so you'll need to buy one separately. Overall, though, the BTER Bb Clarinet is a great beginner clarinet.
