Comments about Amati ACL 261 Intermediate Eb Soprano Clarinet:

As we all know these Eb clarinets can put a good test on a clarinetist. Keeping the gull darn thing intune in the upper ranges really puts the underpants in a pinch Well I'm not going to tell you this 261 does away with all that however I will say it is FUN to play and if you keep you attention in it Keeping it in the upper level in tune is a snap!and the price ??? well it's no wonder they aren't in stock for very long, get one, really! you can't aford not too it's a real gem

Can be a fine instrument

Comments about Amati ACL 261 Intermediate Eb Soprano Clarinet:

I bought mine more than 10 years ago from WWBW, and have put in many hours of playing with this horn. I did, however, make some changes. I experimented with a number of, at the time, available mouthpieces, finally settling on a Vandoren B44. I also changed to a Buffet R-13 barrel, and had to change the tenon cork to achieve a snug fit. After that, it's a fine horn with very acceptable intonation, and a lot of fun to play. The tone is quite nice throughout the horn, and it's well built. Other than what changes I've mentioned, the horn has been trouble free. I've done quite a lot of solo recording with this horn and the horn sounds wonderful.
