Newest Jerome Thibouville Lamy clarinet you've seen?
« on: February 03, 2022, 12:55:41 PM »
Looking at one that must be 1950's-60's (they went out of business in '69 I believe?), trying to decide if this is rare enough to pay attention to, or if you've had any experience with one this late?  Their late 19th/early 20th c. clarinets have incredible craftsmanship and materials.  I wonder if they actually still made their own that late, even?  It looks a bit like some Couesnons of that era, but the bell looks to have a bit of a crystalline resin structure, like a phenolic resin, while the body is wood.

Didn't JTL get bought out by somebody near the end, and became a stencil co?
