I had a hard time finding a clarinet in Japan , well a good one. I needed to get one for my friend’s daughter living in Japan when I visit her this year. So when I saw that there was one for sale online , I had to take advantage of it . If you are looking for clarinet for sale, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com . I think my girlfriend in Japan feels that the ones made in the United States are way better than what she can find in Asia. One got to love living in United States because you can get almost anything and everything there at good prices too.
