I would wait, save money and get

$700 and it's a Buffet, which is a good maker (and it's wood, not plastic)

My niece has a 'beginner' clarinet, and the key action is really poor as compared to my old clarinet (which is a Buffet)

Well, these are all new instruments. You might have better luck looking for a decent used instrument. Just make sure that it's checked out by someone who knows instrument repair. There are a lot of springs and pads and such that could require replacement.

Thanks. If I ever get around to buying one, I'll try to find someone who knows something about instrument repair.

I lost the crown ages ago and when I said something on here about not having it, Loren told me I shouldn't play it anymore until I get another one. I've been searching everywhere but can't find anyone who sells them for my flute!!!!
