BTW, "dans son jus" translates to English, as far as I can tell, to "in its own juice"  :o

Literally, juice or gravy yes, but idiomatically it means something like unrestored.

Yeah, I thought they probably meant "authentic" or something like that, but I like to picture the literal interpretation.  ;D

But, like, when are you ever going to need those? Unless you happen to be playing exactly an Opus II...

I feel like that would be a bit tough, but satisfying if accomplished.

I'm somewhat of a serial number "enthusiast". Not really into numerology but I do appreciate really cool number sequences.

This old B & H eefer is numbered 2222.   Now that is 2 cool!

And good clear marking on every joint, including the MP.  Hands down, the English )from a very early time) have been the finest, most methodical markers of their manufacture.  Thanks for sharing that, Airflyte.

Wow 6.60, that IS cheap. An English name on a German clarinet?

For now.  It will go up and up and up from there.

Even the French have made German clarinets.

The Clarinet Pages is where we answer the question: "Am I not a Clarinet and a Woodwind?"

It's really nice, I can't wait to get my eefer up and running.  I'm measuring the key cups this afternoon for pads. Dave recommended looking into piccolo pads.

Problem I forgot to mention with piccolo pads is that they're generally somewhat thinner than clarinet pads. Which might actually come in handy with a smaller clarinet like that...
