 Eric Pettersen clarinet?
Author: roxwrites

I'm posting here in the hopes of finding some info on an instrument I found at a thrift store. It's nothing I've run across before (I've mostly played Buffet R-13s) but I absolutely love this thing. It's just mysterious!

It's clearly marked "Eric Pettersen - Stockholm" on all parts, and has a silver band at the top of the upper joint with Mr. Pettersen's signature on it.

The serial number is 867.

The clarinet has many interesting and different features, including rollers, silver-plated keys, beautiful lines, and a warm, rich tone.

It also came with leather pads, which I've had replaced, as they leaked like mad. No damage or cracks; it's clearly been lovingly cared for, and I love playing it.

Haven't been able to find a single trace of this manufacturer on the internet, so I'm hoping with all this specialist knowledge here, someone can help me out! I'll play it regardless of its provenance, but I'd like to at least find out a year it was made, something about the company, etc.

The case gives no clue -- it's actually quite a shabby little case, and I think it's a replacement.

Any assistance would be much appreciated. I'm just diving back into playing after about a 20-year break, and rediscovering how much I love it.
