Here is an interesting one.  Rosewood.  1880s?  Initially ai thought it had to be French, but the socket rings and (broken) thumbrest sold me on a German manufacturer.  Pretty.  Reasonably well preserved.  Any thoughts?

Barrel and key rings look vaguely like an early Couesnon but don't take that to the bank... it could be anything.

Gorgeous wood. Almost looks like the propeller Conns.

Here is another, pretty extraordinary find;  a LP refer for under 150 bucks that can be put back into playing condition.  I believe the build date to be early 1920s, due to relatively advanced Albert keywork and LP:  Fairly prided, but who made it?

Very very interesting. I've yet to see any stamp that writes out the "flat" instead of just using the "b."

Here are two, uncommon Pedlers.  Both are 7 ringers;  one with the "Pedler Appliance", and one without.  This first is the pick of the litter.  It is a mid-late 40s (post War) wooden professional model.  These are extremely precise, modernized clarinets.  They tune well, and they are quick players. The PM Artist MP is a nice bonus. The price is entirely reasonable for what you get, and restored, should sell in the $400.00+ range. No money to be made, but none lost, either, and you'll appreciate the experience.

This next one also has the makings of fine clarinet capable of professional efforts, and the mismatched bell can be easily sorted, but as this is one of the more common hard rubber, crows foot models, you'll go upside down buying the right one, unless you get lucky, or just enjoy it as it is--a well disguised, solid player.  This is the proverbial battle worn 1974 Frankenstein Stratocaster that shows up the custom crowd with ritious indignance:

I like that white Mp on the second one. You should be a professional description writer!

The white MPs are unusual.  I imagine that they and the clear ones are some sort of resonite, and more of a showpiece.  Never seen anyone review them, and have no personal experience with either.

For a time I played on a white bass clarinet mouthpiece. It was the same material as a standard plastic mp, far as I could tell. Unmarked.

Had a huge tip opening and really let the clarinet project pretty well. I ended up selling it when I got a Noblet 2V which was a better piece overall.

If nothing else, a great practice in conservation. I’d get it for $20

Right.  I might go 50 bux, because the upper and lower joints are intact, and look workable.

McIntyre time folks!  Two are listed at give-away prices on Ebay.  "Buy It Now", too.  You might wait a while to see one again, and next time, they won't be this cheap, I suspect.
