Intonation summary: When I tested this before, I thought it would turn out better than this. This is standard beginner horn intonation of the olden days, and is typical of many student metal clarinets.


Key work quality: I didn’t find bent keys, which is a good sign.


This clarinet is most appropriate for: People who want to look cool playing a clarinet.


Condition issues noted: A spring catch became broken off.
