Dazzler (white Vito)

This is a very nice instrument for someone who wants to occasionally make a statement by playing an ivory colored clarinet. The quality of the sound and intonation will not disappoint. This would be appropriate for a first chair player who has the opportunity to play a light solo with the band, or for a player in a jazz band who wants to make a flashy statement. This clarinet is far better quality than the Chinese clarinets that are sold in a multitude of colors.

The stamp on the top shows that this is a Vito 3. Compare with the Vito main page.

Serial # D10619 new line 7312, probably made in 1997.

Barrel: 65.9
Bore LH joint top: 14.7mm
Bore LH joint at bottom: 14.7mm

Intonation summary: Probably a little better than the original Vito clarinets

Key work quality: Excellent, like all Vitos.

Word of Warning: White Dazzlers are very prone to discoloration over the years.  It will turn from a brilliant white to a sort of off-white/yellow color.  Still looks nice, but it won't be white anymore.
