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.

If I may use jazz terminology, Jared is a "monster" technician. And shares a great deal in Youtube as well. Thanks for your efforts, JD!

Good for you Dave!

I've been stuck on alto sax (happily).  :)

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

In case anyone was wondering, here are some of the curved wooden necks I've made:

I also plan on releasing a more affordable composite wood version for Basset horns and possibly alto clarinets in the near future!

Links to eBay listings no longer work after they are taken down. I suggest instead to save the web page image in your own files, then post in your reply. They make useful records our "archives". Thanks! BTW, you can follow Jared DeLeon's extraordinary work on Youtube and Instagram.

Thanks for the update! Sounds like a great option for those who need a Low C, but don't need to take out a second mortgage.

For a new, quality instrument, the price can't be beat!
