Lee, you need to visit eBay, the online auction. I am including the URL for
the musical instruments category.

As a sideline hobby, I buy old clarinets, fix 'em up, and resell them. I
recently sold a Conn 18S wood clarinet to a lady in the Midwest for her jr.
high daughter. As you mentioned, Conn clarinets are sturdily built, and the
18S that I rehabbed (my first Conn, by the way) played like a dream. So rich
and in tune!

Anyway here is the eBay address:

If you buy a metal clarinet and decide to restore it yourself, here is
something I learned by trial and error. If a clarinet pad (medium or medium
thin) doesn't seat properly, try using an oboe pad. I find these are
especially helpful on the "side" tone holes such as Ab/Eb on what would be the
"lower joint" if metal clarinets had lower joints.

Have fun!
