What's the deal with Albert System clarinet prices lately?  I'm astonished by what they are listing (and selling) at.  HP or LP, it seems not to matter.
I'm not saying some of them are not worth it, but it's an extreme departure from what they have been hovering at for quite some time, now.

Windsong, did you try to win the CH Jerome on shopgoodwill  ;)

I saw that Jerome too, but got so many instruments to restore.  However, it did look cool.

Add me to the list of people who were watching that Jerome. I settled for the "Peddler". Can't wait to see it when it gets here

That's funny, 4 of us (possibly more) were watching the Jerome Albert last night!

Anyway, yes Windsong prices are going up on these. My simple system "revival" theory may be plausible.

There was another CH JEROME?  ???

Rats! The one I have underway is just lovely;- extremely good key metal and very tightly built. I just finished gluing the bell cracks and re-gluing the pinned upper crack that might be leaking.

I haven't seen any but this one I scored off eBay for nearly nothing but my trouble to find it. I should have a look at the other one.

So there seems to be two of me, since I'm logged in twice.  Could someone tell me where the other one of me is?  I'd like to send her to work so I can stay home and play with clarinets.

"Lisa, Lisa" ? What I wouldn't give to have a member named "Cult Jam" join up, too  ;)

Musty, old clarinet cases are apparently really interesting to turtles.  Nessie came dashing over and helped me unwrap it.

I remember the 80s...but I also remember the 70s.  I think I liked the 70s better...
They say that if you remember the 60's, you weren't there.
From what I've read/heard, that's probably correct.
