Advice please - Clarinets

Once upon a time (about 10 years ago) LLT played the clarinet. While we were at the Inner Vagabond at Pennsic there was a group of people playing middle eastern(?) music and they had a clarinet. At which point LLT said that she would love to pick up her's again if she could play music like that. Only problem is that it is in a box somewhere. So frederich and I were talking about giving her one as a gift. He went looking on ebay and quickly realized he's not qualified to pick one. Since we want it to be a surprise it's not like we can ask LLT questions.

So here's where you guys come in. I know that one of you has knowledge in your head that is useful here, if only to point me to someone who will know what we need to know. I talked to museclio about this last night and her suggestion was a good quality student clarinet. When LLT was playing she used the hardest reeds there were. I've already gotten her softer reeds (purchased before we realized we couldn't find the clarinet).

I'm also looking for ideas of where to find said music.

Advice please?
