A Robert/N R Amelotte
« on: January 06, 2013, 01:42:07 PM »
I have an A Robert clarinet.

I looked on ebay and I found another A Robert.  Except this one had N R Amelotte below the A Robert.
Strangely enough, it says A Robert Paris but below the NR Amelotte is says made in Boston, Massachusetts.

Does this mean that A Robert was made by NR Amelotte?  Or N R Amelotte was made by A Robert?

A. Robert was definitely a French manufacturer and NR Amelotte was definitely a music store (in the Boston area, I believe), so my educated guess would be that A. Robert (a manufacturer shrouded in mystery) probably made the horn for the music store, Amelotte.
