All about Clarinets / Re: 30 dollar train wreck
« Last post by windydankoff on November 24, 2020, 07:11:38 PM »
My suggestion, based on a true joke ... Throw it in the car. Meet a buddy at a bar. Leave a car window open. When you come back out, if you're lucky, there will be a few more clarinets in your car.

Cheers!

When looking at bores, what is acceptable for condition. I mean ideally a mirror smooth bore with zero holes/deviations or grain separation is the target.
I was shining the bore and noticed it was a little rough looking. I am guessing this is from not being properly maintained, swabbing drying etc. Or just cumulative use over many decades.
I am wondering about the condition, will it have a  negatively impact its sound based on just looking at the pictures. Is it even viable to be put into play?
I don't think there is any real way to repair bore pitting is there?
These are the best pics I was able to get.

I'm fairly confident it's from the early 1960s.

I've never worked on a Signet but the Signet Special is regarded by most as a decent step-up model - something suitable for an advancing student's first wood clarinet. Selmer USA keywork was better in the early '60s than in later production, so this ought to be a good one to work on.

There's a little bit of information on the Clari-Met at Silver-Clarinet.com http://www.silver-clarinet.com/ The Clari-Met is a double wall, is supposed to be silver alloy, and pre-1925-ish.
Pictures are always appreciated.


Welcome aboard.
Fascinating site,I added it to the links section of my blog

An old African American spiritual that I originally learned on recorder ages ago. I know it by heart so I thought I'd play it on the licorice stick. Good to play slow stuff, good practice.

Lots of stuff also on Sheet Music Plus but not free. Some solos in the range of $2-$5.

Value tends to be around $250 in perfect condition. “As-is” $50-75 usually

These are cool. Probably 60s. Quality wise better than a Bundy but worse than an E11. It’s sort of like an advanced beginner instrument by all accounts
