Clarinet/Value of a used clarinet


I have a Boosey & Hawkes Emperor wood clarinet  serial number 205372 which I wish to sell.

Can you advise me of the value of this instrument which is in good playing condition.f

Hello Tony,
Your clarinet was manufactured around oct/nov/dec. of 1962...The Emperor model is intermediate level...There are currently 3  Emperors for sale on EBAY  UK...FOR 200   250  AND 400 POUNDS...Your clarinet would fetch something in this range...400 being  pretty hard to get.....Cheers   JACK
