 E&S A Clarinet
Author: CapnCheapo

Hey guys,

I recently acquired an Evette & Schaeffer Bb clarinet with the "K" serial number (dated to 1964) for use as a backup instrument and am amazed with the sound I'm getting from it. Based on BB/internet research there is some debate over whether or not the K series was made with the R13 bore for a short time.

Regardless, I have become curious as to whether or not E&S made an A clarinet at this time period using similar methods, and if they did, will the letter in the serial number match between A and Bb? In other words, does "K" on an E&S A clarinet, if it exists, correspond to the same desirable time period?

Thanks for your help.
