I have a K-series full Boehm Bb (K23xx) - oval logo (very similar looking to the Buffet logo, which is why they changed it) but with a transplanted top joint with the circular logo, though it does need a total rebuild - some silly arse has soft soldered a bit of brass to the low E key (which I've taken off) and had only this key nickel plated - if I can't get that reverse plated (ie. removed) I might have the lot silver plated.

On the bell under the logo it has:


You can't go wrong with these, so long as they're sound - and well worth having overhauled to top notch playing condition.

The A in the set has the serial number 70xx, is a standard Boehm but has a perforated fingerplate (like an oboe) for RH 1, with a bridge and adjusting screw fitted as well to close the ring key pad with it. Nicely done, but the keywork generally is very well made and made with a high degree of pride by the looks of it - and certainly not what you'd find in a production clarinet nowadays.
