[SUB][/SUB]Hello all. I am new to this forum, sorry for my complete lack of knowledge as well as I am trying to build this up for my son, who has started to learn to play the Bass Clarinet. Now he insists it won't be a passing phase so we have decided to try and buy him one to practice with at home. I don't know where to start though, only that a used or second-hand instrument would be best because they would be cheaper and less of a waste of money if he decided he doesn't want to play it in a year or two. Again, I know next to nothing. He is 12 and fairly tall for his age if that helps in any way? I have read a little around this forum and there seems to be a hell of a lot of knowledge, so I am hoping that somebody can help! Thank you kindly.
