The instrument feels and looks great, especially with the silver keys. The sound is precise and accurate but the warm tones could have been better. The wood in the joints expanded in about 20 days from the time of purchase and the clarinet could not be assembled. I wrote a couple of times to the company in France and in the USA. Unfortunately they did not respond. Luckily I found a repairer who fixed it by filing with light emery paper. I am very dissatisfied with the lack of communication and customer support on the part of the company!
