    After reading all of the threads on this piece, I still don't know which one to pick to learn, or if I get all of the differences between the two

    Grad Duo:
    - A clarinet, orchestral tuning bass?
    - Transcription of the violin and bass Gran Duo
    - Costs twice as much as the duetto (so would this mean that this one is played more often?)

    Duetto:
    - Bb clarinet, 1 and 1/2 step higher tuned bass
    - Apparently closer to original/intended tuning


    Did I get this right? Which one would you suggest to play?
