Hello, This is my first time posting. I'm looking for a new to me fully wood clarinet for use in amatuer chamber, symphonic, or solo setting. I have not played seriously in about 3 years, but am looking to dust off the rust. I played for about 10 years and have dabbled in bass clarinet and even managed to make my regions district band. This whole time, however, I have been using a hammy-down Bundy 577 which is a good horn for what it is. Sadly, the refurbishment from 2004 is now broken down and its ready for another overhaul.

I have found a number of what I believe are Thibouville stencils and imports and would like some help selecting an instrument to take to get professionally worked on. I have heard many of these horns have suberb intonation and erognomics. I have a slight dexterity problem in my right hand which casues wome issues in the lower forks. Looking at the keywork things seem promising in this respect.

1. Appears to be a very early Jean Barre (in case w/cracked barrel) along with two other horns one of which appears to be an intermediate Buffet import and perhaps a second later Jean Barre. :

2. A Jean Dumont which appears to be a combo of a Jean Barre and Rene Dumont:

3. Gently used Rene Dumont:

4. Another unrelated horn which looks in good shape (also appears to be a fine french instrument):

Thanks for the help, please don't snatch any of these out from under me... Me and my Bundy have suffered enough together.
