Amati Eb clarinet

From the big, to the small — I’ve been working on a little Eb clarinet (often nicknamed “eefer”).

This one is an Amati, an ex-school instrument, which sat unloved in the school cupboard for many years before being acquired by a Sydney University Wind Orchestra player.

The leather pads were all completely dried out, so I’ve changed them out for normal skin pads.
The lower four pads also have a lot of play in the rods, so I’ll be counter-boring the screws to try and take up the play.
