Sold: Buescher TruTone Albert-keyed Bb Silver-plated Clarinet ‘28

I listed this instrument on eBay today. This treasure is a very hard to find professional metal Bb clarinet made by Buescher in 1928 (estimated). It has a tunable barrel and screw on bell. Anderson plating did the replating. Mills Music’s Steve Nelson did the complete overhaul with a fabricated right-hand thumb rest, new pads, corks, and some springs replaced.

This very rare Buescher Albert-key instrument comes without a case. It plays flawlessly and looks like it just came out of the factory. This is a clarinet that dreams are made of.

    Good Morning,

    I am writting from Poland. I have Clarinet Triumph (Buescher) B 1923 (I guess).
    One piece clarinet, Perfect after renovation. All original parts with original bag for it. It is rather for collector than for normal every day use. How much can I ask for it? How many USD?

    Thank you in advance for reply.
