  1. Yanagisawa
    Hi guys! I have a question for you all concerning the modell of my Yanagisawa. I just bought it yesterday, and the mechanics are pretty elaborate, so I strongly think it's not a counterfeit, but the SN is throwing me off. Here are some pics and specs for you all. Stencil: Made by Yanagisawa...
  2. Conn
    I have a 555xxx Conn and I'm not finding much info on it anywhere. I searched here and a couple other places. I'd guess it's from 55-56 based on their website, but any idea what it's worth? It has the shooting star engraving on the bell. It's has some oxidization and small dents, but has been in...
  3. Clarinet
    I just had a Bundy contra in for a look-see. Not much wrong with it, so it was mostly fun getting to blow on a contra again! The serial number has me confused, though, it's #3362! *If* the contras are all part of the Bundy numbering system, that would put it before 1905(!), and we all know...

  5. Buescher
    I went to get my Aristocrat big B alto put back into playing order and was told that it wasn't even worth repadding much less the two broken springs and a couple of corks. I had been under the impression that Big B's were very desirable horns and worth much more than the $400 he estimated the...

    Hello out there! I am about to sell a Yanagisawa soprano that I bought some twenty years ago in a second hand Music shop. I have only used it myself a few times -the clarinet got most of my attention I'm afraid! I took the "Yani" to a friend who runs a musical instruments repairs shop. We both...

  18. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    I have my eye on a tenor with a very high serial number 370xxx Buffet-Crampon tenor and wondering if there is some kind of break point where they somehow "lost their mojo"? Also, my only reference point is that I have a nice SDA alto that has great ergo and sound, except maybe some weakness...
