Attachment:  instruments.pdf (10k)

I recently started compiling a list of the instruments my immediate family owns and gathering a little information about each. I have searched and gotten the years I think close to right and would just like a few people to look at it and help me narrow things down a little more if possible for the clarinets. Pictures available if needed. Any and all help is appreciated.

Soprano Clarinets
Brand/ Model/ Serial #/ Year

Selmer/ Signet 100/ 188140/ 1983?

Selmer Signet Special/ 79203/ 1969

B&H London/ Series 2-20/ 229315/ 1982

Leblanc/ Dynamique/ 186/ Pre 1955 (1950-1951)

Leblanc/ Symphonie/ 2267/ Pre 1955 (1950-1951)

Buffett/ ?/ 7510/ 1932

B&H London/ Series 2000 Bb/ 212675/ 1981
A / 205176/ 1981

Attached is the PDF version incase this one is incomprehensible due to line breaks and the such.

In 1932, Buffet made only one model, which had no name and was built for professional use.

The Leblanc Symphonie was their top of the line model.

The other clarinets are student/intermediate models, except perhaps for the Leblanc alto, for which we would need to see a photograph to make a determination. Does it have side keys with the "jump" design, like the Symphonie?

A serial of 229315 would put your B&H 2-20 closer to 1963 according to the B&H serial number list believed to be most accurate.
