Better to sell Bb and A clarinet as a SET or SINGLE?
« on: November 14, 2019, 04:07:26 PM »
I never really put too much thought into this question, but I have a client who has a set of R13 - a Bb and an A

Does one maximize profit by selling them separately or as a set in the double case?

A factory-original set is fine-tuned as a matched pair. So, the player can switch horns with minimal change of technique. I think the whole is worth more than the sum of the parts!

Better to sell separately. Most people who can afford a set of pro clarinets can also afford a set of new clarinets and will be more likely to go with that option.
