While there is no particularly authoritative site that lists all manufacturers, this one is reasonable:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_clarinet_makers


The instruments list below is over a decade old, with some more recent edits.



C Clarinets


These are the ones I know about. Prices may be old. Prices last updated 10/26/08.


e-mail me to add/modify information on this page at: dumpster605(at)tds(dot)net


Amati 351C $579


Allora / Arioso ASC105 $995


Noblet 45C


Berkeley C under $500 I think.  Haven't seen a reasonable review of these yet.


Buffet E11C $1694

Tom Puwalski calls his Backun-ized E11C "awesome", but this added $1600+/- to the cost.


Buffet RC $4499 special order


Martin Foaghttp://www.musik-foag.de/


Forte C $874

A grenadilla instrument with silver-plated keys for this price?


Stephen Fox C $4200CDN ($3800US)

There will be a substantial wait after placing your order. Construction won't begin until receipt of your down-payment (about half the cost of the instrument.) The coolest thing about ordering a custom instrument are the options: C#/F# trill, LH Eb/Ab, adjustable thumbrest, Stubbins register mechanism, Low D, Basset, synthetic material, custom tuning needs, etc.
