Dual pitch (Bb/A) clarinet by Orsi

This looks fun.  I can't imagine that it works particularly well.

The dual register key holes are interesting.  Maybe one hole is used for Bb and the other for A somehow.

A few of these or something similar have shown up for auction a few times over the years.  The ones I'm thinking of had some sort of metal sleeve or something inside the bore and had cracked as the wood shrunk, unfortunately.
