I swithched from clarinet to sax when I was 11 years old, lately I've been trying to throw in a few tunes on flute and clarinet to mix things up. Clarinet has been tough. The air resistance is killing me. I don't know if it's the mouthpiece or what... Guess I should sit down with a teacher for the first time since 1971 and try to figure it out.

In the mean time...

Checking out your vintage clarinet Links...
I have acquired one myself and I was wondering if you knew anything about it... It has the slant sig, but the overlapping rings etching that circumscribes the piece is along the bottom border of where the lig goes; the top border of the lig placement is a single thin line engraving/etching. has SN#8280.

I wonder if these pieces are known as being hard to blow on - high resistance pieces... I'm using like a 2 Rico for starters. I tried a Leguere and that was even harder resistance.

Any ideas of how old this piece is, and what it may be worth in case I want to trade or sell?
If you want a free blowing clarinet mpc, get a fobes 3L.
I had to stop playing clarinet for a while due to throat problems related to back pressure and the Fobes allowed me to get back into it.
