Mystery Clarinet
« on: May 07, 2020, 08:44:14 AM »
Just received an old clarinet (Ebay find) that only has one marking on it: "American Student".  Any idea of the maker or vintage would be welcome.

Pedler made a clarinet marked "American"

Boosey & Hawkes made a clarinet marked "American Leader"

And I believe Cundy-Bettony made the "American Knight"

There's also the Conn "Pan-American"

Some pictures would be very useful. Make sure to resize pics to 600kb or less to post here.
