This is a very nice vintage R Malerne Bb clarinet in wood. The upper joint is stamped serial number 02185 and the lower 02085, numbers so alike that it must have been a factory mistake in stamping. The instrument is in great shape, pads are a couple years old but still sealing, and it is playing well in as-is condition. This is a great instrument for those players looking for their first wood clarinet at a low price. It has obviously been well maintained and is a strong player, with a crisp, responsive tone and a nice color to its tone. Ships in a good case.
