1 lx 8 months ago Vintage Gretsch B flat Commander Clarinet for sale or trade. I'm thinking this was made mid-'50's judging by the beautiful tweed and leather case. New cork, new pads, vintage springs have an easy action. Heat impressed with "Gretsch Commander USA" also with a #17xxx in the old plastic.Not as good as wood but cheaper and with a much warmer sound than any modern beginner's clarinet. Latches work fine and comes with a case key -- and no, it won't fit your guitar case. Will trade for: a copy of Ed Ball's 6120 book, a Duane Eddy handle with armature, that rusty, dusty tone twister sitting around in your parts drawer or ?$50 shipped to you in CONUS. Shipping may be higher to HI, AK and Canada.
