All about Clarinets / Better to sell Bb and A clarinet as a SET or SINGLE?
« Last post by DaveLeBlanc on November 14, 2019, 04:07:26 PM »
I never really put too much thought into this question, but I have a client who has a set of R13 - a Bb and an A

Does one maximize profit by selling them separately or as a set in the double case?

I would go for the upgrade. It's the "blank slate" factor that appeals to me as well.

Without "provenance" it's very difficult to a value on work done to anything by any legendary person.

I forgot to mention in the original post that about 7 of the tone holes have been severely chamfered/beveled. This is as you know a completely permanent modification, and you can never go back.

Soooo if you happened not to like the difference the tone hole abuse makes, then you're flat outta luck!

Does Kenny still sell on eBay? If so, a link would be appreciated!

Isn't the Ridenour ebonite rather than plastic?

You're correct Dibbs.

this is from Toms website .......

Materials: the Ebonite Advantage

The body of the Lyrique is made from pure, natural, unalloyed hard rubber (a.k.a. ebonite). We believe ebonite is superior to wood for clarinet making in almost every respect.  Ebonite brings many positive qualities to the Lyrique’s acoustical formula that constitute a real improvement over wood. These include increased tonal warmth, tonal purity, resonance, evenness of response, tonal fullness, and amazing stability of upper register tones.

 

The use of ebonite also results in much greater consistency in production as well as providing bore dimensions that remain stable in a wide range of seasonal, temperature and humidity conditions. In addition, the ebonite construction provides the performer with a clarinet that is virtually worry free. The pure, natural hard rubber of the Lyrique body will not warp or crack. Though it is made from all natural materials its' construction does not require the sacrifice of the life of a slow growing, endangered tree. (For more detailed information about the positive features of hard rubber please see Tom's article, The Grenadilla Myth. ( http://www.ridenourclarinetproducts.com/the-grenadilla-myth.html )
