USA made, wooden clarinet in perfect working order. Serial number 71794 dates year of manufacture as 1976. All pads and corks in good condition. This model features larger keys than the 17s model. Perfect for smaller hands. The case has a fold down compartment for sheet music and method books (a nifty feature) and is in rock solid shape. Pretty much a little time capsule piece that is far superior to plastic student clarinets on offer these days.
