But the happy ending: saxophonist Eugene Rousseau, who
is currently running a clinic here at camp, gave me
the contact info for a fellow at the WWBW (saved me
countless hours waiting in the phone queue on the
cust. service line) who told me a replacement top
joint is completely reasonable in accordance with
Selmer's warranty. *WHEW*. The only downside is I'll
have to part with her for a few weeks while they
transfer the keywork and fit the new joint to the old
bottom. A question--do you think it's out of the
question to ask if they could send me a nice used pro
horn to use while I wait? I will be in school soon
and will most likely be playing in our orchestra and
our school doesn't own many "nice" clarinets besides

Jacob - nope, that probably won't happen. Be glad that it's still under
warranty. You should consider getting the Alteri "Cozie" - it will keep your Clarinet
from cooling down too rapidly. When I'm teaching I use the Cozie as well as
a Hagerty Silver Keeper (anti tarnish bag) which I put the Cozie over the
Clarinet and the Silver Keeper bag over it all. I have a large size 24x30
bag and it fits right over the top of it all. Prevents tarnish as well as
the Clarinet from cooling down too quickly.
