Subj: Re: [kl] unsure about model of clarinet
Date: Mon, 20 May 2002 14:06:06 -0400

Hello :)

I am new to this group and was glad I came upon it last night and joined.
Erin, I don't know much about the price of an E flat but please keep me
informed as I may be interested in purchasing it. I am trying to purchase a
bass clarinet now but I'm not familiar with the name.... M. LaCroix
(France). I understand it is old but have been told it is in perfect
working condition. I am concerned that parts may not be available for it
anymore or that the keys are made of a material that may melt or break when
trying to be repaired. I can't physically check it out. If anyone can help
me with this, please let me know.

Thank you,
