    Great Value for the Beginner

    This reasonably priced Jean Baptiste clarinet is pretty fantastic compared to similarly priced instruments. This instrument boasts easy playability, a consistent tone, and very comfortable key-work. When compared to some of the more recognizable name-brand instruments, this clarinet stands up very well. This would be the ideal instrument for any beginning student being mindful of budget, or a great marching band instrument for the player who wants to keep their wooden instrument indoors. The case included is really nice and basic cleaning accessories are included.

      This is a great beginning model clarinet. It works well and all of the pads and parts function flawlessly. These have been incredibly popular due to the quality vs. the price. If you are in the market for a clarinet I highly recommend you check these out.

        Jean Baptiste Does It Again!

        Staff Reviewer

        Pros

        • Case and Mouthpiece Included!
        • Durable Resonite Body
        • No "Break-In" Needed

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Beginning Students
          • Concert Bands
          • Marching Bands

          Making all instruments easily affordable is the name of Jean Baptiste's game, and they've certainly won with the JBCL290! As a resonite (plastic) clarinet, it has all the benefits of needing NO weathering ("break-in period") and retaining a durability unmatched by other brands PLUS it includes a case and mouthpiece. Let your student flourish without wilting your wallet!

          If your child is looking at starting out to play Clarinet and you want to get her one she can keep without having to rent one every year than the CL290 is a great option for you. With the amount rentals can cost getting something like this to start out is a good idea. Great bang for your buck and comes with a soft case.

          Great Starter Clarinet

          The JBCL290 is the perfect beginner clarinet. With a solid design, good keys and pads you or your student will really enjoy the experience of playing this horn. It might not say Yamaha or Selmer but the tone is where its at. It feels and plays just as good as the entry levels that those brands have to offer at an even better price. Very good buy.

          If you are looking for a starting point for a student clarinet..look no further! Made of ABS plastic, but both feels and plays great! It is pretty durable and comes with some goodies as well! Like I said before, this is a good starting point price wise because we are never sure how the youngins are going to be with music sometimes (especially at young ages). Anything less, will give you problems and will cause them not to be interested. I have personally been there, done that before, got a better instrument (similar to this JB line) and then moved up from there.
