I would avoid the "bakelite" versions, which is the Chinese mistranslation for ABS plastic. The "ebonite" ones should be good. Every ebonite item I've purchased from the Chinese has been fine quality hard rubber.

I'm also very interested in the Chinese nomenclature regarding clarinet materials. Contrary to your findings, I have seen what appears to be ABS plastic bodied clarinets under the auction title listing of "ebonite". Not saying you're wrong Windy, just that the term may be very 'loose' amongst different ebay sellers from China.

When I see a little Eb clarinet listed as "ebonite" for $89.99, I have to assume it's just ABS. Looking forward to your thoughts on this!

(I can post an auction link if needed.)
Good luck with it

Yes Bulgaria is the land of full boehm clarinet, thanks to the great Ivo Papazov, who plays my low flat with many ornaments
Dave and I thought that this was an interesting clarinet when Janie contacted us. So if any of you are interested, here's the link:

I have great results locating leaks using a modified stethoscope, described here:,1673.msg12507.html#msg12507
Quick Update:  The Noblet eefer arrived.  It's dry and crusty, but a nicely constructed horn.  It played top to bottom, and with surprisingly good intonation.  It should be even better after an overhaul.  Fingers crossed...
