I play tested the Legacy against two other entry-to-intermediate-level Bb clarinets: the LJ Hutchen (plastic), and the Mendini MCT 30 (rosewood.) All were ordered through Amazon, and you can read my reviews of the other two on Amazon as well. I used my Yamaha Custom as the standard, and I used my Yamaha Custom 2* mouthpiece on all the horns for the purposes of comparison. (In fact, I never even looked at the mpc's that came with any of the clarinets.) All the instruments sounded surprisingly good; but even so, the Legacy was the clear winner--barely inferior to my Yamaha in most respects, other than a somewhat less resonant chalumeau register.
The keywork is tight, and the key and body finishes quite lovely. The sonic qualities are pleasing, with a very open sound, and with remarkably good intonation throughout the scale--particularly in the sometimes troublesome throat tones. The ergos are spot on; in fact, I could hardly tell the difference between my Yamaha and the Legacy just by feel.
Of course, I have no idea how long the silver plating, the pads, or the springs and pivots will hold up over time; but the instrument seems well-made in all respects. I wasn't about to disassemble it to compare the quality of these parts, but my experience with cheap Chinese-made saxophones indicates that bargain instruments from PROC will probably need some adjustment or minor repairs pretty soon after purchase.Read more ›
Chinese manufacturers were starting to make nice instruments. So I took a chance and bought this Legacy. It comes with a very nice hard case with locking mechanism. Unfortunately there were no instructions on how to set the combination. Oh well, it is still a nice case. The clarinet sections were all wrapped in plastic. It was a pretty thing to look at in the case. The silver plated keys are bright and well finished. The ebony body is also well finished. The key action feels right (but I'm comparing it to my old piece of junk. The new joints were stiff at first but after a few applications of cork grease and assembly and disassembly every thing goes together just fine. In the lower register the clarinet has a nice warm mellow sound. I've had some problems with upper register notes but I think that is more likely due to an embouchure 30 years out of shape rather than leaking keys. The kit has two barrels which is nice for tuning. It came with a reed and a Selmer care kit. If you want something better than a basic student model I think it would be hard to beat this for the price.
