Info for G. Rudolf Uebel clarinet
« on: August 15, 2022, 02:09:18 AM »
Hello, I have a German system wooden rudolf uebel clarinet that I bought for 550€ and I'm wondering if it's worth that much. Were rudolf uebel clarinet good enough? Do I have a bad, cheap clarinet or a intermediate - Profesional clarinet?

E550 seems a little much. They are very hard to find, but I don't know if I could justify that price point. I bought my G Rudolf Uebel, Reform-Boehm, for about $220. Granted, the bridge key is broken but that's a sub-$100 fix, placing it in the $350 maximum range.

I don't know much about these. I do know that they are pretty rare (at least in the US), and considered to be pretty good.

For your purposes, I doubt you could spend the $200 on a refurbishment (making it E750), and then still be able to sell for a profit. They're nice, but not THAT nice.
