Right now I own a Bb student clarinet and I got very good in the clarinet. I've been playing the Clarinet for 2 and a half years and soon might want to get a professional Clarinet so I can sound better. I've heard that there are Basset Clarinets. Are there ones in Bb? That could be useful when I transcribe a song to Clarinet and have to play those deep notes and play the KV622 Concerto Mozart played (of course I'd have to transcribe it). The reason I don't want an A, but a Bb one is because all my classmates in school are Bb and most songs are written for Bb Clarinet. Please help me.

Thank you.

I think you will find that bassett clarinets are only made in A. Re transposing to play A parts on a Bb you will be in very awkward keys.

Selmer - always go for Selmer Paris models rather than US models.

I recently heard someone say they paid about $6,000 U.S. for a new Buffet. This is not much higher than the prices I found googling.
