Did I ever tell you about the time the Tall Guy drove to Kraslice to try to buy an Amati soprano saxophone? That was before I married him, but he was already teaching in Saudi Arabia. He flew to Geneva and rented a car for the summer. He actually made it to Kraslice, but found that no one in Czechoslovakia would sell him a soprano saxophone. They were so popular that they were all exported in order to get foreign money into the country.
Well, he should have bought one of these C clarinets. It would have cost nothing back then, just after the Iron Curtain fell. But he didn't realize that this is the perfect instrument for playing Irish music or contradance tunes (not to mention Klezmer!) He was using his A clarinet for that, and not having much luck.
Here's your chance to get the right clarinet at a great price! The body is grenadilla wood. The keys are silver plated. It has undercut tone holes and blue steel springs. There is even an adjustable thumb rest. The mouthpiece is an Amati #6 that comes with a silver ligature and cap. The list price is now up to $1300, so don't pass this one up.
The Tall Guy has loved this clarinet. It plays easily, and it's in tune throughout its range (as much as any clarinet.) The only reason he's selling it is that he stumbled upon a Buffet at a price he couldn't pass up.
The clarinet is in great shape. Good pads all around. No noticeable wear on the keys. Look at the pictures!
I will ship by FedEx in the United States. The $13.50 c
