PenzelMueller Brilliante
« on: May 04, 2019, 11:58:05 AM »
I have a Penzel Mueller Brilliante Model clarinet that I would like to sell. Serial number is M 5434-B. Grenadilla wood. The barrel does not match. Lower joint ring on bottom missing. Can anyone give me an estimate of its value? Thanks!

There are only two completed sales on ebay:
$245 and $310

The $310 one had an overhaul, it doesn't look like the $245 one did.

So in as-is condition without the original bell and missing bell ring, you would probably be looking at $125-$175

The bell is original, but the barrel is not. Will that change the value? I did try to post a picture but the site bumped it off. The last owner had the keys gold plated.

Oh in that case, it will be easier to sell.

Original bell is good, since buyers are less likely to go with a misbranded bell.

Barrel doesn't matter too much, usually.

Either way though, the price range I posted before should hold relatively true.
