Thanks to John Willey for giving me the opportunity to review this clarinet.


From the design of the keys, I am guessing this might have been made in the late 1950s or early 60s. I am guessing this was made by the La Monte company.


Serial  #2702

Barrel:  66.2 mm

Bore LH joint top:  14.64mm

Bore LH joint at bottom:  14.82mm

Intonation summary: This was intended as an intermediate student level clarinet, and it has intermediate intonation. I would need a 64mm barrel to not be too flat at the beginning of the clarion register. I tried it with a 64mm and it was OK, but then the chalumeau register became sharper.


Key work quality: Quite good.


This clarinet is most appropriate for: Beginning or intermediate players.


Condition issues noted:  There were a couple of hairline cracks in the bell. One was almost the whole length. They have been filled and stabilized.
