Subj: RE: [kl] Adjustable thumb rest for Eb clarinet
Date: Wed, 26 Jul 2000 18:26:39 -0400

Hello Lacy,
This is a standard item on the Jupiter 631N Clarinet (adjustable thumbrest
with a hole for a strap hook). It retails for about $10 my cost from
Jupiter as one of their dealers, and I allow for about 15 minutes labor to
install them. I will sell the part (including screws) to anyone for $20
prepaid (I pay shipping) - Lars Kirmser THE MUSIC TRADER
