How about making a lamp out of it? That's what I am intending to do with an old worthless Prufer...if I can every find the electrical makings. Lamps like this sell for over $100 in "The Music Stand" a mail order catalog. Just a thought.

If it is indeed one of the laminated clarinets, it will some day be worth more as a displayable clarinet or collectors piece than as a lamp.

I hate seeing clarinets turned into lamps. Many times that instrument could be returned to playing condition with a little TLC and bring some one a lot of joy even if it isn't a top of the line instrument. And there are some old instruments that would be actually lose value if turned into lamps.

Besides that, clarinet lamps are ugly. The proportions are all wrong for a lamp. I wouldn't pay 10 cents for one.
