All about Clarinets / Sonata Deluxe Metal Clarinet
« on: October 15, 2017, 07:36:56 AM »
Is anyone on here familiar with a Sonata Deluxe metal clarinet? If so, any idea who the manufacturer was? I don't have access to a pic, but it is stamped made in the USA

All about Clarinets / Where in the world?
« on: October 01, 2017, 02:39:11 PM »
I'm just curious by nature so I often take a moment to look at other's profiles. I've noticed that most folks on here haven't listed where they call home in their profiles, so tell me : from where do you all come?

Has anyone here accidentally used key oil when they thought they were using bore oil? Asking for a friend... :o

...after less than 30 days of being on this board you find you've cracked the top 10 for most time spent here....

I blame all of you for creating so many intriguing posts with so much arcane knowledge that I have been searching for.

...thanks a lot...       ;)

All about Clarinets / A bad day of clarinet scavenging
« on: August 20, 2017, 10:07:50 AM »
So yesterday I was excited to get a hold of my 2 latest acquisitions. A Pedler Pennant and a Cundy-Bettoney Duranyl. Did you ever get socks for Christmas? If so, you'll know what I mean  :(

The Pedler looked great. Until I found the LJ doesn't have the same serial as the UJ. In fact, it may not even be a Pedler LJ. The fault was mine: I could have asked about serial numbers before agreeing to buy as there weren't any pics showing them. Well....darn.

The Duranyl looked great. Until I found the touch piece for the Eb/Bb trill key was broken off. And not in the case. The fault, once again, was mine. I should have looked closer at the pics because it was plainly visible. My bad.

0 for 2. 2 dogs in one day. Ugh. I've certainly learned to temper my enthusiasm with a healthy dose of caution from now on. In the meantime I'm just going to feel sorry for myself for a bit.

But, then again, tomorrow's another day  ::)

All about Clarinets / Chedeville & Cie clarinet - who has info?
« on: August 16, 2017, 09:36:55 PM »
Here is my problem child :-[

She is my eBay horror story. Even won a period case from a different seller for her to live in. She arrived chipped (that's why there's tape on the UJ. I don't want to lose the chip) and with a missing pad cup on the LJ and a non-original barrel. I should have looked more closely at the pics...but I didn't. My bad. Lesson learned.

She has the Chedeville & Cie stamp on both joints and on the bell. The mouthpice is stamped Buffet Crampon & Cie.

I've found almost no info about Chedeville clarinets, just the mouthpieces. Anyone have info to contribute?

All about Clarinets / Pronunciation
« on: August 04, 2017, 08:30:03 PM »
So I was just wondering if Buffet is pronounced "Buff-it" or "Buh-fay". Also, is Noblet pronounced "Nahb-let", "NO-blet", or "NO-blay"? Enquiring minds want to know... :-\

All about Clarinets / Help in identifying clarinet maker
« on: July 31, 2017, 08:42:59 PM »
This clarinet was purchased around 1969 (I don't know if it was new or used then) and was what I learned on. The upper joint and bell are both stamped "Made exclusively for G. Schirmer New York - Los Angeles" inside an oval. The serial number "54184" is on both upper and lower joints. I have tried googling but all I get are clarinet music folios for clarinet printed by G. Schirmer, no matter how many result pages I look through  :-\

Can anyone here shed some light on who manufactured it and when? Thanks in advance!
