Help with age of Vintage Clarinet please
« on: September 08, 2022, 07:55:58 AM »
Hi All.
Oldie newbie to the group asking for help. I have just purchased a Boosey & Hawkes Emperor Clari, and the serial number is 89981. I have been trying to find the age of the instrument but cannot find anything, can anybody please help me with the age or give me a link that will provide the information.
Thank You

There used to be serial number data for Boosey & Hawkes online, but it's apparently gone now. Fortunately, I have the document saved.

Your instrument was built in either 1952 or 1953.
