 Amati "Ligna" Key of A clar on ebay?
Author: oldreedguy

Well, another eBay...find...

I just a playable inexpensive "A" clarinet that's in tune...whether I ever do an orch gig is doubtful. I had an old custom yamaha "A" (when they were cheap) for a long time. Stumbled upon this one but can't find any info about it. Low Eb key, wood, that's about it...

Anyone know about this?

From their website:

Also found this on youtube:

They were student level clarinets 30-40 years ago.
The add does not say anything about condition.

Lignatone are Amati stencils - they produced affordable wooden clarinets but the quality is massively variable.

Going by your description it's a full Boehm which would've been the most expensive model in their lineup at the time, but not necessarily top quality compared to the likes of Buffet, Leblanc or Selmer.

I think they're based on Selmer Series 10 clarinets.

Amati also makes wood Eb Clarinets as well. I couldn't afford it and I found out way 2 late. I just found out a few years ago. Buffet also makes a wood C Clarinet but I'm satisfied with my Amati wood C Clarinet.
