I play clarinet myself and i would say that Lark isn't a very good make, sorry.

The wooden ones are always better than the plastic ones no matter what make they are,the plastic ones are normally for beginners. The wood is usually made out of red wood but you can get ebony clarinets which are a lighter colour.

Its a good thing its got cork on all the joints otherwise you probably wouldn't get a sound out of it! lol

I hope this helps

I have such an instrument. I got it from my father, who bought it for me about 1965 in an specialised musical instrument store It was a good students instrument. I have played it for several years with a lot of pleasure.

Please note: My area is BRASS instruments, not other wind, string or percussion instruments. I will provide information on antique, obscure and out of production BRASS instruments. 1) Please don't ask for evaluations, I'll not provide them on this site. 2) I am often asked very similar questions, so I'd invite you to first check on Horn-u-Copia.net. Much of the information I have garnered about this topic, I have posted on this WEB site.

Experience

I perform in several historical bands, have informally researched the area, repair brass instruments, and operate a Forum dedicated to the topic at http://horn-u-copia.net
