Hello, as I described in a different thread I was checking a used Selmer 9 going down to low Eb. It turned out a Selmer 9* in a bad shape and I have resent it immediately.

Now I found that Amati does two models of Bb clarinets going down to low Eb: ACL 624 and ACL 625 (the second having more keys than the first). Both are not full Boehm but go down to low Eb.

Does anybody here have any experience with them or at least one of those? Amati seems to have gone bankrupt last year but maybe some of these are still around...

Thanks again

Thanks for the hint.
I decided to take a plunge and bought a full boehm clarinet from a forum member for much less than this one. It will give me the possibility to check out, whether this is a viable way for me at all without big investment...

Today I got the clarinet back from the workshop with full overhaul done. With a new Oscar Adler barrel fitted it's a very nice and well intonated instrument; I'm so glad having sent back this Selmer and bought this one.
The keywork is really fine and is working like new now, no play, no jiggling. Quite free-blowing and sonorous ... The repair man is working on clarinets since more than 30 years. H said this is late GDR time, when C. Wurlitzer was still in the GDR. They made professional level instruments.
The silver plating was cleaned and polished and there is not a single place where it's got thin or worn out.

Stay safe!
