Subj: [kl] Bass Clarinet/EBAY
Date: Sun, 2 Jul 2000 22:18:42 -0400

I would like a bass clarinet. While I would love a Selmer wooden clarinet,
like my Bb/A set, it's not feasible, financially. It's only use would be to
play in a community band that rehearses once a week and for personal
practice. (I'll never play professionally, again, but I still enjoy
playing, and the bass was always a pleasure for me.)

Some time ago, it was suggested that I look on EBAY. I have done so,
periodically, but am unnerved looking at prices for BCLs at $275, and so
forth. I understand the principal that you get what you pay for, but from
anyone who has dealt with this service, what can one realistically expect?
The person that told me about EBAY bought a wood Leblanc for about $400, and
spent $100 fixing it up. (I've seen student line BCls advertised for under
$1000, new.)

Some suggestions, please.

Jim Hobby
