This is my clarinet that I have been trying to identify. I know its not cleaned up. Its metal and I do hope to get it restored once I know what to do.  My daughter received it, though she plays the alto sax.  5316 is on the back and I see no letters.

 This is one of the better, intermediate to advanced student model clarinets of the late 1930s-1940s, but it was made prior to WWII, by Martin Band Instrument Co., as determined by the key work.  The keys all appear to be intact, and not malformed, and the finish is not bad either.  Thank you for sharing that.

That looks nice. I have a thing for metal claris. Would love to find one someday

Hello Pedler people,

Today I bought Pedler clarinet P6618 at an estate sale.  I think the case is not original.  I'm a total newbie.  How do I tell if the pads are still good?  The keys seem to mechanically work ok.  Does this horn need to be re-furbished?  I'm gonna try to attach some pictures.

This is going to sound stupid, but the easiest way to tell if pads are good is to put a reed on and blow into it...
