This bass clarinet is amazing!!!! The only thing is to get used to the amount of air you put in. It uses a different amount other than the clarinet. Also, the high notes are a bit rough around the edges.
The tone is rich and deep, which is PERFECT!! Hopefully, other people will buy this and also agree on how amazing and beautiful this instrument truly is.
