Spitfire LABS has a free pizzicato library, also, again from Spitfire, they offer BBCSO Discover for free

Further to what Marco wrote - this was done with the free Spitfire LABS Strings 2. It was RETURNed, however, seemingly not for production, but because the piece was "too busy".
Gives you an idea of the sound, however, I certainly did a few things to it... :)

May not be that inexpensive, but here’s my recommendation for clarinet:

+1 - The Spitfire stuff is generally great (and they have a very good marketing department :D) but sometimes the stuff is not well sampled - so be prepared for sudden surprises. In the BBC Discovery version some of the pizzicato samples (e.g. double basss) have a rather annoying slap back sound in the lower register, which is hard to edit out but in context of a full orchestration you can get away with it. (I used the Spitfire BBC Discovery version on a recent pizzicato track which was forwarded but I had to put in quite a lot of effort to make everything work). For bread and butter I actually think the NI Session Strings sound quite good in the pizzicato setting. I also like the staccato clarinets in the BBC Discovery Orchestra.
Cheers,
Matt

I agree about the slapback sound with the doublebass in the BBC library. I'm trying out the doublebass sound from trillian. Thought it makes a good replacement for the low end that would normally be occupied by BBC strings. Trillian although only bass (electric, synth and acoustic) is worth the investment in my opinion, but I don't think it can be considered inexpensive. I think it's around $400 now. Just thought I'd throw this out there.
