 Re: TSA vs Clarinet Stand in carry-on?

I never carry on a K&M clarinet stand, because I couldn’t argue against its possible use as a weapon, when assembled, to even a sympathetic security officer.

And such people are not selected for their sympathy.

When the OAE was returning from Switzerland to London one time, a perfectly innocent young woman ‘cellist had her spare strings confiscated by security. And because these were special gut strings, they were worth around £500.

According to the security guard, they constituted a possible weapon.

The story ended well on this occasion, because the pilot, encountering her in tears as she boarded the plane, went back and retrieved her strings from security and took them to London in the cockpit.

Don’t assume ANYTHING of these people.

Tony
