    Wouldn't 100W be a little overdriven at a larger venue? Or are you saving up for something with a little more clout?
    I know an orchestra leader called eric

    Great attitude . I used to gig round that way, mostly for Wheatley Taverns (probably before your time - are they still going btw?)
    I dunno if this will be of interest to you or not.

    Yes, if the person has good feedback. I know plenty of people who have done that and it is fine.

    If you want any advice on makes on ebay etc, I am a clarinettist so I know a bit!

    I bought my tenor trombone off ebay, very good price. If you know what you are looking for and you can ask the right questions then you are away. I think it is always a good indicator if obvious questions about the instrument are answered in the advert (i.e. age, amount of usage, condition of keys/slides, mouthpieces, etc.). I would only buy off someone who knows what their are talking about (unless you are absolutely sure you are getting a total bargain of someone who doesn't realise what they have got!).

    btw, not sure whether I am in this thing or not:

    Instruments: Tenor Trombone, Bass Trombone, Guitar, Voice (Baritone).

    Cheers

    I tried my friends sisters flute the other day. I was crap at it! It took me about half an hour to get a note out of the thing.

    Should be getting my Amp soon! Yey!!!

    I play the guitar and attempt the piano on occasion. I can't read piano music, so I generally just listen to something then play it.

    I can't play the flute lol it's just aaaaall wrong... I don't think I like the idea of ebay, think I'll wait see if I can get a clarinet elsewhere first. I had one but it was borrowed off the school.. not a bad one either :rolleyes: should have "misplaced" it :p:

    You can get basic plastic ones for about $300/400 Australian, which is pretty cheap.

    I meant like 50 quid max. I'm not a clarinettist, only played for a few months, and I'm not going to play it often enough to justify spending any more on it than that... as for $300.... :toofunny:

    Do you have any friends who might sell one?!

    Ebay is good, but also keep an eye on adverts in your local newspaper
