I am new to this list and, although I am a hornist, have been a clarinet
enthusiast for years. I also play clarinet with my instrumental music
students at school and have filled in with a few bands & orchestras when
they were really in a pinch for someone on third.

I do need some help/advice with an old Buffet clarinet that I've had for
years. Just recently I repadded it and have found that it has promise
though the upper joint had previously been pinned a couple of times.

The serial number appears to be 27571, but the numbers are worn (the 4th
digit in particular). The letters "LP" are engraved/stamped under "made in
France" opposite the serial no. next to the bell tenon. The register key
curves around and opens on the front of the upper joint. It is a Boehm
system clarinet.

I would appreciate any advice about this model.

Thank you very much.
