Dazzler (white Vito)
This is a very nice instrument for someone who wants to occasionally make a statement by playing an ivory colored clarinet. The quality of the sound and intonation will not disappoint. This would be appropriate for a first chair player who has the opportunity to play a light solo with the band, or for a player in a jazz band who wants to make a flashy statement. This clarinet is far better quality than the Chinese clarinets that are sold in a multitude of colors.

Word of Warning: White Dazzlers are very prone to discoloration over the years. It will turn from a brilliant white to a sort of off-white/yellow color. Still looks nice, but it won't be white anymore.
