Selmer vs Buescher


I have the chance to purchase either a used Selmer Signet 100 or a Buescher 400 Special clarinet. I would appreciate the forums opinion
on which one to buy. I also am anticipating having the one I choose
overhauled . Is there a better one to consider buying as related to
availability of spare parts if needed to replace any needed.

Thank you for your input

They are both cheap to purchase on eBay if spare parts are needed. The Buescher was a stencil if I recall (I don't know for sure or who was the maker as the only Buescher I ever "followed" were the vintage large bore TruTones).

The Selmer Signet 100s are very plentiful out there and are actually a very nice clarinet. The Selmer Signet Special is even better and the Soloist is even better than that.

I would recommend, between those two, the Selmer Signet 100.
