Good stuff on ebay
« on: August 08, 2016, 08:05:23 PM »
Here's a thread to post all the good stuff on ebay that you either don't want or can't afford - so that one of us in the community can get it instead of random Bob, Joe or Steve!

Here's a couple of Conns that may interest somebody.

I suppose this should fall under bad stuff, instead of good stuff, but it depends upon one's vantage point, I suppose.  This one was ridden hard and put away wet, many, many times (perhaps at the bottom of the ocean, from the looks of it).
The bell is wrong, the barrel is cracked and repaired incorrectly, and the mp is a "throwaway".
The body looks sound, but the keys are beyond a simple polishing.  I sense that a re-plate is most certainly in order. 
BOTTOM LINE:  Very sweet, 120 year old 4 ring clarinet in LP, but abused beyond reason.  Worth it at $129.00?  Not to me, but YMMV...
(If I'm jacking the thread, please relocate this, Dave.)

This one's not on eBay, but if you're in the Chicago area and in need of a bass, it could be worth a look.  It's been hanging out there for over a month.

I can see that going for $600 easy on ebay... Too bad I'm a thousand miles away :(

I do love a nice Couesnon!  Especially the Monopole.....sadly, I already have one, and the resale demand on them isn't especially strong.

A Selmer with a wrap around register key (never seen that before) and an Albert lower joint mixed with a Boehm upper? And the serials match?  ???

The upper and lower are both clearly marked.  In any case, rare bird by famous maker is the only explanation.

FYI, I took a shot at the Kohlert alto Dave posted;- aimed a little too low. Oh well, the romantic optical effects in the photos kind of put me off on a higher bid. Too many mysteries in the shadows, but it looked like a nice clarinet. Most Kohlerts are.

That's Albert on the upper joint, too.  Look at where the four trill keys should be. 
The Clarinet Pages is where we answer the question: "Am I not a Clarinet and a Woodwind?"

Funny, the metal Kohlert I nabbed for $82 was actually a complete surprise.  The pics weren't that good and I was blind or something that night so I thought it was wood.  Imagine my surprise when I opened the box...
