I just bought an Eb clarinet, the bell is enscribed: V Kolhert Sons Makers, Grazlitz, Made in Bohemia, Eb 239827
Since you seem to know much about the Kohlert clarinets, is there any way from this information (serial number, where it was made) to find out approximately when this little guy was made? Or do you know any juicy tid-bits about it?
It's really a nice-sounding horn, and extra tiny. I used to play an old Selmer Signet Eb and this is a good inch to two inches shorter. It's wooden, not sure what kind of wood, though.
Thanks much for reading!!
