 Antique Clarinet?
Author: Cherish

I am 32 years old and live near Branson, MO. I would like some information on the clarinet that my mother handed down to me.

It was given to my mother when she was in grade school or high school, probably the 50's. It was given to me when I was old enough to start playing in bands in school. I did play it for awhile but did not keep playing. It has red wood, metal keys. (Forgive me professors, but I don't know what to call these pieces) The top section with the keys has a surface crack running the entire length directly under the keys, hard to see unless you are really looking. The same piece also has a couple of chips at the end of the cork, but is actually in the wood. The pads were replaced when I was a child.
The bell does state "Pan-American, Div.C.G.Conn,LTD USA. I can find no dates. The case looks really old, a reddish rustic color, easily scratched, in poor condition. I know virtually nothing about clarinets so any information would be gratefully appreciated.
