I own 5 Alexandre Robert clarinets (2 in A, 3 in Bb) and am very satisfied with them. On the attached picture you will see three of them. The clarinet in the middle is my preferred one (with articulated G#) - although I own also a much newer Selmer 10S Marchi and a Buffet Crampon R13. I play them with non-Robert mouthpieces and occasionally also with newer barrels.

I own also an A.Robert oboe probably from around 1920-1920. It still plays very well.

BTW: the composer Hindemith mentions in a letter that they imported an A.Robert Eb clarinet for the first performance of his quintet. The player was not satisfied with the Biffet Crampon clarinet he had and preferred the A.Robert model.
