General Comments
While the LeBlanc Vito is made of plastic, it is a great instrument. Perfect for the beginner, and in my opinion quite suitable for playing right up to and even including letters. Assuming you got a new mouthpiece (a Selmer C95 would be ideal), and one of those Rovner ligatures, which would get rid of that cheap plastic-ish sound. The Vito is great because it handles like a much, much more expensive instrument and sounds like a much more expensive instrument (if you can spare a couple of hundred for the mouthpiece and ligature). Put simply, everything included you can get a secondhand Vito with new mouthpiece and lig. for maybe 8 or $900. The Buffet R13 costs more like $3500, and you'll sound the same. So your clarinet won't look as flash, you think anyone in the audience can tell the difference?
