Good work Lisa. Going s-l-o-w is the only way for vintage instruments.

You scored a real treasure there. "France" you say? Well, who could that be?  ???

You may be right.  Somehow, I can envision them playing German polka music on French metal clarinets, while drinking entire six packs of American beer.  Dunno, just kind of works for me.

I've been working on Jeanie, and feel that I have done what I can polishing the body, and have moved onto the keys.  I didn't realize how overall tarnished it was, since it was so uniformly nasty.  Anyhow, a pic of the body, and a key partially polished, which really illustrates the huge improvement I'm seeing.  It is a very satisfying process.
