These are very nice playing clarinets. The included mouthpiece is pretty good too.
I'd say start out with a Rico Orange box or Mitchel Lurie 2.5 just to get the feel for the different embouchure.
If you have access to a clarinet specific teacher or advanced clarinet playing friend get a few lessons. At least enough to be sure you have the embouchure, hand position and horn angle under control.
Remember, the clarinet is not a black wood version of the straight soprano. Not everything will 'translate'.
Once you get going I think you'll have fun! The clarinet is a beautiful instrument indeed...

The Selmer Signet Special is a little better than the Selmer Signet. There were some added enhancements, I guess.

These a great instruments. I find it to be a great clarinet for doublers.

As far as learning to play the clarinet, get a good teacher. This instrument is not a saxophone. Do not ever make that mistake in thinking when playing this instrument. This will keep you sane during your clarinet studies.
