Description: Clarinet - Vintage Conn Bb Clar with low Eb
There are no pictures available for this clarinet
This clarinet is 1 step before of so called "Full Boehm System". Full Boehm system should have an articulated C#/G# key. This one does not. But it has everything else; top joint 3rd finger ring which enable us to play Bb/Eb with a forked fingering, left hand Eb key which comes quite handy sometimes, and of course, low Eb. The purpose of this low Eb was to play the lowest note of A-clarinet in a orchestra when a player doesn't own one.
It is made of plastic of some sort. I don't think it is hard rubber. And, unfortunately, I do not have a case.
I just acquired a real full Boehm system Bb clarinet, so I don't need to keep this one. It plays reasonably well and I enjoyed surprising my colleagues with the low Eb. You can do the same!
Thank you for looking!
