All about Clarinets / Hi! Back on the bench...
« on: November 18, 2018, 04:16:51 PM »
Hi to all.  I've been off the bench for awhile, but I'm starting to get rolling again.  Lots of additional activity in the real world has pulled me away, but it's good to catch back up with things.

Hope this note finds everyone doing well!!

All about Clarinets / Artie Shaw Concerto w/ Band
« on: April 27, 2016, 11:39:32 AM »
I'm pleased to post this link of the performance of this year's collegiate winner of our 2016 FCWS Concerto Competition.  I know you will enjoy this from Dillon Acey, a student at Jacksonville University, performing the Artie Shaw Concerto with the First Coast Wind Symphony.  Dillon's a fine young fellow who just plays the socks off of this old chestnut.  He has the style nailed.


All about Clarinets / Speaking of Cabart clarinets...

There's an Eb Cabart out at the auction site of good will.  Can't make my mind up whether or not to be interested.

The price will tell, I suppose.  An interesting addition to a collection.  I'd like to know how well this might play.


Just a note to avid logo gliders out there.  I noted that JLSmith sells the Krylon leafing pen (for $15) for logo restorations and gilding, so I found it at Amazon for $9 plus change via Amazon prime (2 days w/ free shipping) to give it a try.  The results so far have been stunning to say the least.  I had been using Liberon gold wax/crayon to fill with "decent" results, but as always they faded and didn't really "pop" like the original, even in the best cases.  Here's a link to the Amazon page:


The Krylon pen makes it look like a genuine factory logo - I'll come back and attach some pictures to show you what I mean. Just wanted to pass on what I've learned.  Clean out the old logo, then fill the logo with leafing paint, let it dry, moisten a tissue with a LITTLE rubbing alcohol and gently remove the portion you want to remove, rubbing into the center of the logo area to keep from spreading the paint.  When you pick up paint, turn to a clean area of your cleaning tissue and continue until done...

All about Clarinets / H. Freeman stencil - believe it\'s a Malerne
« on: April 30, 2014, 11:12:51 AM »
$6.99 + shipping.  Just got here yesterday.  Needed a bit of adjustment for bent/maladjusted keys, but after 15 minutes work this plays as a really nice free-blowing large bore clarinet.  Beautiful, tight grained grenadilla throughout.  Think I\'ll keep it.  Pads are dirty but seal well, just needs new corks on the tenons so things don\'t flex so much.

S/N 977, a good deal earlier than the instrument pictured on Phil\'s CP for H. Freeman, but mine looks identical to the horn pictured, except without any stencil logo at all on the top/bottom joint, and not as clean.  Even came with a well-preserved serviceable case.  Elated, here...
