All about Clarinets / Re: An Interesting Italian Clarinet

for me it looks like a Buffet Crampon, maybe a stencil, very commun in this historic times

You're right. I took a closer look at the pics and saw the donut key. I have only seen two other names attached to donut keys - Buffet Crampon, and M. Lacroix. I imagine you're correct with it being a Buffet Stencil. This would also mean that Buffet possibly stencilled M. Lacroix. The plot thickens!


That's quite interesting! I did not know Buffet used to do stencils. That would maybe explain explain why my clarinet, despite the bargain-bin barrel, sounds as good as it does. However, what's interesting about this one-piece full boehm is that the alternate C#-G# banana key is it's own separate tone hole; not connected to the usual C# key. Was this a feature on Buffet and M. Lacroix stencils like this? If so, It's a good feature because frankly it sounds better than the usual key.

Buffet stenciled clarinets for Carl Fischer in New York,
Keilwerth stenciled cheap clarinets for Buffet

Hardrubber has sulfur, and with the time it´s loosing this sulfur. And sulfur makes the silver quickly black.
Maybe today the hardrubber has another composition, but the older for shure. That´s the reason not to carry new hardrubber mouthpieces in the case of a silverplated instrument

Hi,
 in the first moment I thought it is an instrument from D.Noblet. By the SNr. D****. But it isn´t, the c# handle of left hand is diffrent.
¿What is written on the bell, just under the joint ring? It looks, in the second foto, like somthing written.

Hi again,
by the construction of the keywork, here the longer eb first thrillkey reight hand for eb, wrap arround speaker key, I would say the instrument is made in Germany.
I looked for my fotos I have from jazz-clarinets, but no instrument was egual.
But I remember, I have seen an instrument with the pin under this eb key. I am searching.

Hi,
it´s called "jazz-clarinet".
Because the clarinet has closed keys for the tonholes. This one ist a mixed construcion between german and frecnch stile.
The pinky-keys are german, the rest french. Saxophone player used this type of clarinet, because it´s closer to the saxophone fingerring.

Hi,
thank´s for your interest.
in my facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/duque.desanmiguel/
is some info about my investgation of my D.Noblet boehm clarinets, which I love. So I was looking in the web about sencils by Noblet, but don´t found real good information.
At least I bought this one in ebay
https://www.ebay.de/itm/Vintage-J-W-PEPPER-AND-SON-PHILADELPHIA-Wood-Clarinet-Olds-Mouth-Piece/133490998819?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
which was looking by the photos like a Noblet. The intrument arrived and I´am shure, it´s a D.Noblet.
If someone will have more info, I had written something about my investgation in a pdf, but it look´s I cannot attach a pdf, tell me
Be careful

I´ve got a clarinet in Bb from J.W.Pepper, USA.
It´s for shure a D.Noblet clarinet with the serial number 7006C. Upper and lower joint in grenadill and only with serialnumber. Bell and barril in ebonit. The bell is marked with J.W.Pepper. Pepper imported woodwind instruments from Europe.
So Noblet made stencil.
