Question
Hi Jack,
I have a wooden Noblet Clarinet #95747 that was purchased around 1975 and used through high school.
I was wondering what this item is worth.
Thank you in advance,
Lori

Answer
Hello Nori;
The serial number indicates  a Noblet 45 clarinet,which is regarded as a good intermediate clarinet...If it is in near perfect [overhauled condition] with a good carry case, they can fetch between $850 and 1100 or more on EBAY...If it needs work, the price can be $400-700...Cheers   JACK
