Can anyone tell me any thing about this clarinet? It is a Doucet Three Star wooden clarinet. How to tell the age or where it was made?

Hi M J G - Out of curiousity I made a Search for Doucet [only] found one ref. to a "silver" model with a ser # AExxxx. You can try if you wish to find more. The "Three Star" naming was used by Bettoney [Boston] on some of their metal cls in the 20-30's, I believe. Luck, Don

Thanx, Mark, Don

Hi Mark and Don,
Appreciate this information--including the name "Bettoney" as another clue.
Thanks for looking it up. MJG
