In my opinion, the top two brands for clarinets (or any other instruments) are Jupiter and Yamaha. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The top brands of Clarinets are YAMAHA and BUFFET hands down.

There were few made, but unless the two body parts are damaged there is no problem replacing parts if needed. These clarinets were made in the 1950's through the late 1960's by skilled workmen from the manufacturer Keilwerth.
