Clarinet looks in great shape. I would agree that $2k is a good starting point.

Well I just dropped it down to $1800 on Feebay. Maybe I should put the price back up. Yrs it's in mint condition except I think the pads need redoing.

Got a counter offer of $1600. I'm thinking of coming back with another of $1700. That would be less 10% that is Ebay's cut. I can really use the money, let me tell you.

I mean, in my experience you could wait another several months to get the price you want, or just go for it now

Dave's Law: given enough time, you will always get the price you want.

Discovered a small crack in a tenon. Revealed to buyer. Says it's ok with a discount $1500. Hope to send this out this week
