Vintage Cundy-Bettoney Three-Star Metal Clarinet
While the Three-Star one of the most common of Cundy-Bettoneyâ€™s metal clarinets, it is rare to find one in this condition. Most of the metal clarinets you find on eBay and elsewhere are in terrible, unplayable condition. This one is beautiful with very little wear, scratches or dents.
The Three-Star was sold by Cundy-Bettoney under its own label as well as under other brand names. Metal clarinets were produced from about 1895-1965 with most made between 1924 and 1939. This one was likely produced in the later years and instead of being silver plated is made of nickel silver which has a darker color than silver and resists tarnishing, wear, and corrosion much better.
This clarinet has had a full key-off restoration where all of the keys and springs were removed and the body and keys carefully cleaned and polished. Worn or broken springs were replaced and all of the worn cork bumpers and tenon cork was removed and replaced. New pads were installed throughout and the instrument was adjusted back into playing condition. The serial number on the instrument is AN7360.
Included is the original nickel-silver barrel, a case that is in good solid condition, a nickel-silver lyre, a new mouthpiece, a mouthpiece ligature, and a mouthpiece cover.
Please feel free to ask any questions. I accept returns but only if the item is significantly not as described and the buyer is respo
