Barcelona CS-1000

Selling at $119.95 at I can tell that this would be Chinese because it includes white gloves as part of the package. This seems to be something the Chinese like to include, and I appreciate the gesture. Gloves could help in wiping down and removing fingerprints from the instrument after playing. But there is not a single student who would have time to do this after band class. AND one cannot play a clarinet with gloves on!

AustinBazaar say that they stand behind their products. This instrument might be as good as the Hutchen, but I doubt it, since it is a little more than half the price. It is probably plastic instead of hard rubber.
