I have red, white, and blue Vitos that were all used. Got some nice comments on them!

I have no idea where it came from. I doubt it was put on by a school unless the school removed keys in order to mark their horns. I guess they could, but it would be a very devoted band instructor that would  take the time.

The scratched on number does not match the serial number. There are no numbers on the keys that I can find. I have not taken the top half apart, but I do not see any numbers there other than the serial.

The blue clarinet has the number D189 scratched in by hand under some rods. Ideas?

The Marbeau is loaned to my son-in-law, so I will have to compare it to my Selmer K. It is the same era.

The screws came right out. Of course, with the way the pads were put in, maybe they let the Lock-Tite dry before they put the screws in.

Oh, no! It had to have a new key made and I would be afraid to try one with all of the extra doodads, anyway. I am preparing to fight the blue Vito now. It is more my speed.

A couple of questions for those of you who know all:

1. I am repadding the lower half of the blue one. Whoever did it before didn't get enough shellac in to touch the pads, so they fell out. Anyway, all of the screws have a red dot on them. I haven't seen this before? Is it just so you can see them if you drop them?
2. The red and blue clarinets came with the original mouthpieces. (The red mouthpiece is awful.) The white mouthpiece is a slightly different color and is a Goldentone. Do you think that is the original? Goldentone was a Sears brand, wasn't it?

We have 3 clarinets in Mounted Band this year. We will play these.

I hate posting attachments, by the way.
