 Re: Vintage instrument search

Well, I have a few reasons for wanting a vintage instrument. I am financially able to afford a new horn, but I'm only just getting back into this hobby after a few year absence.

1. Restoring an old clarinet is how I got my beginner instrument (Bundy 577)
2. I can't justify the expensive of a new wood clarinet with my current ability
3. Vintage instruments tend to have more stable wood
4. I like the weird factor when I show up with a label no one has ever seen before
5. Grendilla is only getting more scarce
6. Not in a rush for a new instrument
7. Old instruments have their problems presented up front as opposed to them developing from new
8. Like the idea of having a couple of different horns in my collection someday e.i. Bass clarinet (which is really my primary instrument), plateau keyed clarinet, full boehm, albert system, wide bore, narrow bore, etc.

Bottom line getting out with a new to me clarinet that is a good play for only $500-700 would be ideal
