Please note: all instruments need sporadic attention or servicing. It is apparent that this clarinet was played as recently as the '90s – a testament to its manufacturers and its caregivers. 

Finally, we believe that we have provided a detailed and honest evaluation of this classic UK-manufactured clarinet. Thank you very much for viewing our listing!
