Continental Clarinet identification
« on: January 25, 2019, 08:23:57 AM »
Hello: This is a follow up to my previous post, apparently the photos did not load correctly. I am looking for some one to identify this model.
Thanks,
Mike

Unfortunately nothing special here. This is a vintage metal clarinet from anywhere in the 1930-1950 range. Not sure who the maker is, but there were literally hundreds of differently "brands" of metal clarinet.

These usually sell for about $40 in unrestored condition and $100 restored. A bit more for silver plated models, but this doesn't appear to be silver.
