This guy "challenges anyone to find a case with the same design and color"

I wonder what the prize for winning is...

It's anyone guess really, just like the substance that the seller is "on".

Truly a rare find, although the place for the second mouthpiece could be a better fit, as well as the place for the top joint. What really makes it a rare piece though is that it's a Boosey and Hawkes in the Ohler/German system (cleverly disguised as a Boehm).




Skill Level:not for beginners         Custom Bundle: No
Design:  Öhler/German System     Type clarinet

Design and color - pfffff - that's easy.
How about exact same smell?

Nothing like the scent of half-century old saliva, fungus, and viruses to get you going in the morning.

I think I have effectively reduced my lifespan by several years from inhaling so much instrument case air.
