How 'bout this amazing pair (I have a search out for Pruefer):
https://www.ebay.com/itm/G-Pruefer-A-Bb-Set-Clarinet-Articulated-G-Low-Eb-Buffet-Crampon-Barrels/401539762382?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

Looks like a legacy forgotten.

What do you suppose is that knob is on the barrel at bottom of the picture?

Well, it certainly was top-of-the-line at the time it was built.

I know there can't have been many manufacturers who made 1) metal, 2) articulated, 3) Albert clarinets.

That may narrow it somewhat.

The lower keys have rollers, which means it's not too early, but then again Albert largely died after like the 20's, right?

My metal simple system has no rollers, which should date it to... 1880s?

So this one is probably turn of the 20th century, I'd imagine.

Selmer A with extra correction key for flat low-F

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Selmer-Paris-Recital-Clarinet-pitched-in-the-key-of-A/283040555575?_trkparms=aid%3D888007%26algo%3DDISC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52473%26meid%3D8aa0c3652de24d5fa5d8829d37b6db36%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D163146207009%26itm%3D283040555575&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

That's a lot of gizmology to correct one note! My Chinese A has all the bottom notes flat. I wish I knew what best to do about it, it sounds so fine otherwise!

As I'm sure you know, they're all flat on low E and F to some degree.  I suspect, but don't know for definite, that it's partially corrected by the flare at the bottom of the bottom joint.  It can only affect those long tube note to any significant degree and what else would it be there for?

There are multiple discussions on other sites about drlling a hole in the bell to help correct those notes.  That or some other bell modification might be the ticket.

Couldn't one just attach a shorter bell?

No Dave. A shorter bell will raise the pitch of the clarion bell notes as well. That would be a bigger problem.

A little hole in the side of the bell raises low-clarion B.

Buffet / Carl Fischer   interesting features on this one!

Those donut keyed clarinets are neat. I have a donut Buffet A and a donut M Lacroix Bb.
Not too much real benefit to the doubt, but cool nonetheless!

My recent ebay purchases. First gamble into the vintage and wood clarinet world. Particularly interested in this wood Jean Barre and wood Jean Dumont which I hear is are good instruments (anything will be better than a Bundy 577 with a cracked tenon): https://www.ebay.com/itm/163199511452 and https://www.ebay.com/itm/VERY-OLD-JEAN-DUMONT-GRENADILLA-WOOD-CLARINET-AND-CASE/202323824302?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Hi windy, slightly off topic but how flat are we talking? I've been reading your work on STL clarinets and might have a go at a Chinese horn myself.

A bit spendy, but with "wriggle room", and with a forked Eb and articulated C#/G#.  Interesting.
What do you suppose is going on with that wood?  Extremely dry?  Water damage?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1940s-L-Hamel-Clarinet-w-Case-Extras-Made-in-France-Mystery-Maker-/132446240198?clk_rvr_id=1403635750137&rmvSB=true&ul_ref=http%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%252Frover%252F1%252F710-53481-19255-0%252F1%253Ficep_ff3%253D2%2526pub%253D5574933636%2526toolid%253D10001%2526campid%253D5336728181%2526customid%253D%2526mpre%253Dhttps%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww%25252Eebay%25252Eco%25252Euk%25252Fitm%25252F1940s-L-Hamel-Clarinet-w-Case-Extras-Made-in-France-Mystery-Maker-%25252F132446240198%2526srcrot%253D710-53481-19255-0%2526rvr_id%253D1403635750137&ul_noapp=true

Quite a bit of wiggle room, as time has shown.  The white stuff was indeed stinky mold.  It's received its first treatment with white thyme oil.  The thyme oil nearly brought out the serial at the bottom of the bottom joint, and it brought out "HP" over "B♭" on its barrel.
