Informações sobre este instrumento, número de série 2547

@oliveirageorges you must have Chrome as a browser, set on Portuguese only, you need to amend the preferences for language otherwise your browser will always (even if you wrote in English) trnaslate to Portuguese

It appear to be a Marigaux instrument , Clarinets made by SML carried Strasser for their best line an Marigaux for a slightly less high characteristics

Marigaux still exists ( indpendent after the SML group was sold in many parts) you can ask them about when it was made

find it here

It’s an alto clarinet. Looks like you are missing a neck which might be a hard find as they are not universal. Marigaux did not make their own low clarinets, this is a Malerne stencil so nothing special but can be an okay budget instrument.

are you sure sure that Marigaux didn’t make the Strasser and Marigaux clarinet? They certainly had ( when I applied for a job at the SML group) and they had it until 2001, now they only make oboes



according to the recorded history they should have had a factory making clarinets since 1935 in 1975 they bought Malerne



“...Strasser Marigaux was founded by three associates: Mr Strasser, Mr Marigaux and Mr Lemaire, hence the abbreviation of the current company, SML. Strasser Marigaux began activity in Paris, 144 boulevard de la Villette with the manufacture of saxophones and flutes. In parallel with this, they also began making oboes and clarinets at a workshop in La Couture Boussey, a village in Normandy, already a well-known centre of French wind instrument making.


1975....Marigaux bought the company Malerne (in La Couture-Boussey) and transferred their production into a more spacious factory.


1981...Strasser Marigaux abandoned the manufacture of all other instruments to devote itself entirely to the improvement of oboes and clarinets. "


Anyway it isn’t exactly an expensive instrument even when complete (assuming OP doesn’t have the neck)


this is for sale in the US for €717

They made clarinets themselves but their low clarinets (alto and bass) were stenciled out to Malerne as it just wasn’t cost effective to make them in house. It’s possible that hey may have made a few low clarinets of their own early on but this instrument shows some of the dead giveaways of being a Malerne like the register key mechanism, the left hand Ab/Eb, low G resonance key and the general shape of the key work, especially the blocky trill key touch pieces.

Again your post shows in Portuguese, you must either use Chrome (which translates your efforts in English into its settings language and you need to change it or we would all stay in this impasse)

The forum rules say we use English here


Very good for you that the alt-clarinet plays well, its value is rather limited, if you look around the internet you will find a few for sale at prices varying between €200 to €700.
