I just purchased some used flutes and clarinets that are in need of tender loving care. Most are student instruments that need complete overhauls. They will make excellent beginner level instruments for parents who don’t want to rent or invest in expensive new ones. Amonst the student clarinets I found a Buffet clarinet that also needs much work but has the potential to be a good, advanced level instrument when it is re-built. I will probably start on this one in that I already have several re-built begining level instruments available on my web site. Also included in the “buy” were two more old metal clarinets. I now have four old metal clarinets that are destined to evolve into lamps or possibly re-built working instruments. Enough talk…I better get to work!
