New (old) clarinets have arrived, buckle up and prepare...
« on: March 04, 2022, 10:20:09 AM »
yourselves for the awesomeness. 8)  Pictures will be posted soon:  Buffet Crampon & Cie Eb Boehm circa 1859-1860s with salt spoon pad cups! ;)  Circa 1890 Eugene Thibouville integrated barrel Boehm high pitch C clarinet! ;D  Also, from a bit ago, a Thibouville/ F. Espagnet Bordeaux labeled Boehm Bb, from about 1900? Bb LP- beautiful condition w/maybe original wooden mouthpiece, which by a miracle, is not broken, since it has it's original or era correct case.  Somebody had harvested the C for screws, but I have found replacements for 3 of the 4 missing already.  Condition is really nice, overall, though strange mods have been made to the thumb tube?  The Eb is a bit rough, non-original barrel and bell I presume, as they are unlabeled.  I think one missing screw and spring I could see from an initial casual inspection, a metal tube insert has been used on at least one finger hole, but no cracks in the unibody and all the keywork is there.

Well, I'm ready for some awesome pics to go with the awesome new vintage clarinet acquisitions! Congrats.

That high pitched C might just be a paint peeler!  ;D
