>From your description, (and assuming you don't have a low key that plays low
Eb) you have what I call an almost "full Bohem clarinet". I don't know if
there's a name for it, but it's the clarinet I have, and I call it "almost"
because I don't have the low Eb key.

You say you can't send pics. Can you receive them? I'll be happy to
photograph my clars. and send you the pics. My keys are all in the right
place. <g>
