Eb Dazzler?

I cannot tell for sure, but looking at the bell of this instrument, it appears to be a Eb clarinet...  What do you guys think?

Dave, I assume that Vito Dazzlers were only produced as Bb instruments.
And I must say with the white ones turning into a different color, I would rather have the basic black model!

Nope.  It\'s a Bb.  The barrel and register key are too long for an Eb.  Plus, most Ebs have a single piece instead of top joint and bottom joint.  Sorry.

I\'m having Marching Hundred flashbacks looking at this one...  Ice Cream clarinet time.

They made white basses and altos. I had the upper joint form a bass once but sold it. They seem to pop up occasionally and sell for surprisingly low prices.

There are many things that I will never forget losing. My 2 biggest fails:

1. CLEAR Buffet B12 with copper keys. Extremely rare. Sold for $200 about 10 years ago. I was a poor kid and couldn't afford it. Probably could sell for over a thousand now.

2. MCINTYRE SYSTEM alto clarinet. I've only ever seen two of these. Sold for $400. Probably priceless.
