OK, I\'m not sure why I needed a non-functioning simple system but here it is in all it\'s patina

Thanks, Dave. I hope that Phil feels the same way when I request a Spa Treatment after his return from Indonesia :s  Those bent out of shape keys look real funky to get back in line!
I got some throat tones out of it and a few from the lower register. As much as I like wooden clarinets, my ears like the sound waves emitted from hard rubber instruments too.
Also, I\'ve never seen a clarinet from the H.N. White Company that wasn\'t made of silver plated brass or lacquered (Cleveland brand).

Well, when Phil returns from Indonesia this old relic is going to get a Spa Treatment.
I\'m so looking forward to it !! :)

Just got word that Phil has officially dived into the project. He did comment on how brown the hard rubber has become! :blush:
