Intonation results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.
For this test, I pulled 0 at the barrel and 1.3 in the center for this horn.
Intonation summary: This is very nice intonation for the era that this instrument was made. I used a Legere Signature Series 3 ¾ reed. I would often be flatter with such a long barrel. This clarinet must have been made to accept a longer barrel than some of the era.
Key work quality: Extremely nice nickel silver. Shines up beautifully. The top LH Eb/Bb key has been soldered, and is no longer in good alignment with the tone hole. It still works.
This clarinet is most appropriate for: Intermediate to advanced players. Lovely sweet tone from a vintage instrument.
