 Re: Is this clarinet worth to buy?

I am a staunch believer in the axiom "you get what you pay for". If you managed to move the seller from 200 to 100 without too much balking, it means he just wants to get rid of it at any cost. I have no idea if this particular brand model was ever any good but whatever the case, it's almost 50 years old now and will definitely need a major tune up ( like the seller said).

I am new to clarinets and don't know enough about them to be able to make a good judgement so it's a toss. But it's only 100.00. So personally, I would buy it for 100.00 (will he go to 75?) as a curiosity and to learn/experiment with. But I am a tinkerer. If you're not a tinkerer though and don't have the C note to spare, then walk away. If you are buying it to play regularly then get a repair estimate first.
