Kris, as I indicated, a pile of clarinets would be imported and
then a specific person's name would be stamped on each instrument
in a prominent place in order to give the impression that he or she
was involved in the design and manufacturing process. In fact, no
such involvement ever took place and these people were paid a fee
for the use of their names.
The Noblet clarinet was always a very good brand, never the best, but
always a respectable clarinet.
Re the Klezmer clarinetist, I'd give it all up if I could just play
like Giora Feidman!!!
