Starting out learning the clarinet and was wondering if you could offer some advice? Should I go with a resin made Yamaha clarinet or a Buffet Crampon E11 wood clainet? Thank you for any advice you can post. Thank you.

If you are just starting out I would recommend a resin clarinet. This is for ease of maintenance. Wood instruments can be prone to cracking if not well looked after. They must be thoroughly swabbed after each use, and the tenon sockets must be completely dried before putting away. Resin instruments need to be swabbed after use to protect the pads, but you don't necessarily have to dry the sockets. A resin clarinet can be left assembled on a stand, minus the mouthpiece, whereas you must not do this with a wooden one.
You had best spend your time learning to play rather than maintaining.

Good luck

Alan

Update........... This Yamaha clarinet I purchased is in mint condition and plays better than any other clarinet I've owned which I know isn't saying too much however I have had the pleasure of owning several over the past three years. I'm not a raw rookie when it comes to the clarinet but am far from accomplished. This model #20 which preceeded the 250 plays with more ease and has a true focused sound. I purchased this clarinet from Clarinetcloset.com. Thank you
