Intonation summary: Not good, but I am hampered by my lack of knowledge of Albert system A clarinets. This would require some expert work to make it play in tune. Although maybe all it needs is a historically correct mouthpiece. My modern mouthpiece (Chedeville Prime) does not have the right bore characteristics to bring out the best for this instrument.

Key work quality: Nice. Good quality for the time this was made.

This clarinet is most appropriate for: A clarinet collector, or an Albert system player needing an A clarinet.

After reconditioning:
