I inherited a Conn Sax from an uncle (posted on the Conn page) and a clarinet made by William Nuernberger, serial 25603, Germany, that according to the Google searches that I've done wasn't a very good instrument. However, all the info on Google refer to these as metal clarinets and this one is not (a magnet won't stick to it). Does that make a difference at all? It was probably played as early as the 1930s. Given that my uncle also played a Conn 30M, I find it curious that his clarinet was not as nice.

The clarinet came with a black rubber Selmer mouthpiece that has a gold disc in it with Henri Selmer and then a "precision garantie" and "Table S" in a flat area and what looks to be a signature below this that is hard to make out.

Any info on the clarinet and/or mouthpiece would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

John

Don't know anything about the brand, but hey, if you can play it in tune and you like the sound, I don't see why it has to be a "not very good" clarinet. Some of the more obscure brands can be great.

Actually, it may be a Malerne stencil. If you provide more photos of the body we may be able to figure it out.

Thnaks for the reply - I don't play any instruments so the sounds I would make with this clarinet would be a travesty to music everywhere. Here are a few more photos of the overall shape. Let me know if you need to see more of it.
