Make and Model lists and research / Re: Clarinet Identification
« Last post by DaveLeBlanc on Today at 12:37:24 PM »
Hello,

I am new, sorry if I am in the wrong place. 

I was trying to find some information on a Vals Artist clarinet; made in France. No  serial number.  This is all the information I have, I think Vals is Spanish for Waltz.  The clarinet is nice unstained wood and plays OK.

Hi Steve,

Please go back to the main topic page and click "New Topic" near the upper right of the page.

Please also post pictures of the clarinet, especially of keywork and any logos. If the image is more than 600kb, then you will have to use Microsoft Paint, or Picresize.com to resize the picture to 600kb or below. If you have any issues you can email the pictures to me at daveleblanc@clarinetpages.net and I can post them for you

All about Clarinets / Re: Why don't clarinets come standard with low-Eb?
« Last post by TMHeimer on February 15, 2020, 01:55:36 PM »
Obvious answer is low Eb is never (well, 99.99999% never) written for soprano clarinets (or smaller ones). I suppose you could play throat Bb that way, which may be nice if it's in tune.

The Clarinet Pages has some info on Kohlert here:

The Vintage Clarinet Doctor has some info here on dating Kohlert clarinets.

Bohemia puts it pre-WWI as it became Czecho-Slovakia after, so pre-1918.  Post some pictures and someone here might be able to narrow a date down even more and give give an estimate of value.


Welcome aboard.

Hello, I am trying to discover the age and value of a Kohlert Graslitz Clarinet. Marked with Bohemia , B flat, serial number 233407. It has a very old basic leather shoulder case. I can't seem to find a case like that anywhere. Can anyone help? thank you.

Hey Larry,

That's great! I'm very pleased that it's working out well for you! I felt that it played better than any of the clarinets I had worked on in the past. Here's to another 50 years

(Sorry about the thyme, I usually dilute it 1:3 with almond oil, but it looks like that's still too strong a concentration)

David, i bought that one from you from Reverb last year.  It is a rarity. It makes my job as a clarinetist much easier.  The thyme odor is still there.  I have used a Rovner platinum ligature with great success.  It loves my CWF mouthpiece.  The Ikon barrel makes this R13 extremely light and with more projection.  I canít foresee any clarinet that is better than this except for my other R13 which is closing in on 50 years 1972.

I have been playing contra alto (along with bass) in a group since the fall, and it has been lots of fun.  Nothing quite like playing those low "Pedal" notes and shaking the place (and my head) with that amazing rumble.
