    The caveat here is that they will show you real Yanagisawa pictures and send you a Chinese copy that usually not even close. Sometimes there is one picture of the real product in a case. Sometimes, it clearly states that the product is a copy...in Chinese. Reputable sellers and pictures of actual merchandise are a good rule when dealing online.

    If it is too good to be true, it probably is.

    Caveat Emptor!
    Soprano: New soprano coming soon; Alto: Noblet (Beaugnier);
    Vintage C-Mel Tenor: Evette-Schaeffer, Buffet-Crampon Clarinet: Yamaha
